Peroneal tendon pathology is a common entity but is infrequently reported in the literature. The lesion may be due to partial tears, complete ruptures, subluxation, tenosynovitis, a fractured os peroneum, or damage to the peroneal retinacula. Chronic lateral ankle instability and excessive subtalar and ankle varus rotation may cause damage to the peroneal tendons and their associated structures. This article reviews the pathophysiology, diagnostic imaging, and current surgical techniques for the repair of peroneal tendons.
