Abstract

Tendoscopy of the peroneal tendons is a useful tool to diagnose and treat peroneal tendon disorders. It provides a minimally invasive alternative to the already existing open surgical approaches. Tendoscopic approaches are safe when anatomic landmarks are identified and the portals are performed properly. Advantages of endoscopic procedures over open surgical procedures include reduced morbidity and postoperative pain, earlier mobilization, and better cosmetic results. Results of tendoscopic procedures are encouraging when compared with those following open surgery of the peroneal tendons. This article presents safe, reliable, and reproducible peroneal tendoscopy techniques.
