The management of acute and neglected subcutaneous tears of the Achilles tendon by peroneus tendon transfer is safe but technically demanding. It affords good recovery, even in patients with a long-term neglected rupture. Patients with a neglected rupture are at a slightly greater risk of post-operative complications and may never fully recover their ankle plantar flexion strength.

Abstract

The management of acute and neglected subcutaneous tears of the Achilles tendon by peroneus tendon transfer is safe but technically demanding. It affords good recovery, even in patients with a long-term neglected rupture. Patients with a neglected rupture are at a slightly greater risk of post-operative complications and may never fully recover their ankle plantar flexion strength.
