Early surgical management of traumatic dislocation of the tibialis posterior tendon: a case report and review of the literature.

J Med Case Rep 2018 Nov 23;12(1):348. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Sapporo Medical University, Sapporo, Japan.

Background: Traumatic dislocation of the tibialis posterior tendon at the ankle is a rare injury. Some of these cases are misdiagnosed as ankle sprains and are not treated properly. In addition, because the conservative treatment is not as effective as the surgical treatment, it is essential that patients be diagnosed early so that proper surgical treatment can be performed.

Tibialis Posterior Tendon Dislocation: A Review and Suggested Classification.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2017 May - Jun;56(3):656-665. Epub 2017 Feb 22.

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa; Assistant Director, The Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Unit, Netcare Linksfield Hospital, Johannesburg, South Africa.

Tibialis posterior tendon dislocation is a rarely described entity that is easily missed, resulting in delayed diagnosis and treatment. A review of the English published data on the topic showed inconsistency in the reporting of injuries and surgical management techniques, leading us to describe a novel classification system to guide treatment and future reporting. We also describe a case of tibialis posterior tendon dislocation in a professional volleyball player and our surgical technique for correction, including retromalleolar groove deepening. Read More

Partial Rupture of the Tibialis Posterior Tendon Associated with a Closed Medial Malleolar Fracture.

Authors:
Jin Park

J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 2016 Nov;106(6):449-452

Rupture of the tibialis posterior tendon associated with ankle fracture is rare and difficult to diagnose. This rupture can be easily overlooked because the clinical examination is limited owing to acute pain related to a closed ankle fracture. Complete rupture of the tibialis posterior tendon can be identified by a loss of tension during ankle fracture fixation, but partial rupture is more difficult to detect because the tibialis posterior tendon can maintain its tension.

Acute Tibialis Posterior Tendon Rupture With Pronation-Type Ankle Fractures.

Orthopedics 2016 Sep 1;39(5):e970-5. Epub 2016 Jun 1.

Tibialis posterior tendon rupture in the setting of pronation-type ankle fractures can lead to long-term debility as a result of chronic tendon dysfunction. This rare injury pattern presents a diagnostic challenge because thorough preoperative examination of the function of the tendon is limited by pain, swelling, and inherent instability of the fracture. As such, a high index of suspicion is necessary in ankle fractures with radiographs showing a medial malleolus fracture with an associated suprasyndesmotic fibula fracture. Read More

Tibialis Posterior Tendon Entrapment Within Posterior Malleolar Fracture Fragment.

Am J Orthop (Belle Mead NJ) 2016 Mar-Apr;45(3):E103-7

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Rhode Island Hospital, Providence, RI.

Management of posterior malleolus fractures continues to be controversial, with respect to both need for fixation and fixation methods. Fixation methods include an open posterior approach to the ankle as well as percutaneous reduction and fixation with or without arthroscopy for visualization of the articular surface. Plain radiographs are unreliable in identifying fracture pattern and intraoperative reduction, making arthroscopy a valuable adjunct to posterior malleolus fracture management. Read More

Muscular tendinous junction rupture of the posterior tibial tendon after closed bimalleolar ankle fracture.

BMJ Case Rep 2016 Feb 3;2016. Epub 2016 Feb 3.

ABC Medical Center, Mexico, Mexico.

In this case report, we present an acute rupture in the muscular tendinous junction of a posterior tibialis muscle in a bimalleolar closed ankle fracture after a high-energy trauma in a 30-year-old patient with no significant medical history. Fracture was confirmed by simple X-rays, and was treated with an open reduction in which both of the fractures were treated with osteosynthesis material and reparation of the syndesmosis. If left untreated, this uncommon finding can result in a bad postsurgical outcome; we believe this injury is more common but under-reported in the literature. Read More

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, University of South Alabama, Mobile, Alabama (JM)Andrews Research and Education Institute, Foot and Ankle Center, Gulf Breeze, Florida (WW, EN, CK).

Unlabelled: Dislocation of the posterior tibial tendon (PTT) is a rare pathological process that occurs most often as a result of acute trauma. The injury involves forced dorsiflexion and eversion of the foot against a contracted posterior tibialis. Diagnosis of the injury is often difficult secondary to the rarity of the injury and its similarity with other benign injuries of the medial ankle. Read More

Anatomic Reconstruction Technique for a Plantar Calcaneonavicular (Spring) Ligament Tear.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2015 Nov-Dec;54(6):1124-6. Epub 2015 Aug 5.

Orthopedics Department, Meir Medical Center, Kfar-Saba, Israel, associated with the Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Acquired flatfoot deformity in adults is usually due to partial or complete tearing of the posterior tibial tendon, with secondary failure of other structures such as the plantar calcaneonavicular (spring) ligament (SL), which maintain the medial longitudinal arch. In flexible cases, the tibialis posterior can be replaced with the flexor digitorum longus. It is common practice to suture the SL directly in the case of a tear; however, if the tear is complete, suturing directly to the ligament alone will not be possible. Read More

Extensive Loss of Tibialis Anterior Tendon: Surgical Repair With Split Tendon Transfer of Tibialis Posterior Tendon: A Case Report.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2016 May-Jun;55(3):633-7. Epub 2015 Jul 26.

Emeritus Professor, Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation Medicine, Faculty of Medical Sciences, University of Fukui, Fukui, Japan.

Extensive damage of the tibialis anterior tendon is rare and mainly caused by trauma. Surgical treatment of these injuries can become challenging owing to the limited availability of autogenous graft resources for reconstruction of the defect. In the present case report, we describe a large defect in the midfoot soft tissue after a traffic injury, which included complete loss of the tibialis anterior tendon. Read More

Closed Medial Malleolar Multifragment Fracture With a Posterior Tibialis Tendon Rupture: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2016 Jul-Aug;55(4):832-7. Epub 2015 May 12.

Ortopaedic and Traumatology Unit, IRCCS S. Martino IST, Genoa, Italy.

Ankle fractures represent an exciting field of traumatology because of the wide variety of clinical presentations, injury mechanisms, and treatment options. Rupture of the posterior tibialis tendon (PTT) with ankle fracture can occur during trauma that involves pronation and external rotation of the foot or, less commonly, secondary to direct trauma to the ankle. This tendon injury is uncommon and probably misdiagnosed in many cases, because of the difficult clinical examination secondary to the pain and swelling. Read More

Unilateral Adolescent Pes Planus After a Bimalleolar Ankle Fracture: A Case Report.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2016 Mar-Apr;55(2):348-50. Epub 2015 Jan 30.

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Trauma and Orthopaedics Department, Queen's Hospital, Romford, Essex, United Kingdom.

We present the case of a 14-year-old female who presented with unilateral pes planus 30 months after a bimalleolar ankle fracture dislocation. At surgery, the tibialis posterior tendon was encased in fracture callus within the syndesmosis and required reconstruction using flexor digitorum longus transfer. Dislocation of the tibialis posterior tendon and entrapment within the tibiofibular syndesmosis has been previously reported. Read More

Irreducible ankle fracture-dislocation due to tibialis anterior subluxation: a case report.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2015 Mar-Apr;54(2):268-72. Epub 2015 Jan 21.

Associate Professor, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation, Loyola University Medical Center, Maywood, IL. Electronic address:

Irreducible ankle fracture-dislocations are rare. Several cases of irreducible ankle fracture-dislocation have been reported in published studies secondary to the tibialis posterior tendon, deltoid ligament, or extensor digitorum longus tendon blocking the reduction. We report a case of irreducible ankle fracture-dislocation resulting from posteromedial subluxation of the tibialis anterior tendon around a medial malleolar fracture fragment. Read More

Acute rupture of the tibialis posterior tendon without fracture: a case report.

J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 2014 May;104(3):298-301

The acute rupture of the tibialis posterior (TP) tendon, compared to an acute rupture of the Achilles tendon, is a quite uncommon disease to be diagnosed in the emergency department setting. In most cases symptoms related to a TP dysfunction, like weakness, pain along the course of the tendon, swelling in the region of the medial malleolus, and the partial or complete loss of the medial arch with a flatfoot deformity precede the complete rupture of the tendon. In this case report, we describe an acute rupture of the TP tendon following a pronation-external rotation injury of the ankle with no association of a medial malleolus fracture and with no history of a prior flatfoot deformity or symptoms.

Irreducible Fracture-Dislocation of the Ankle Associated With Interposition of the Tibialis Posterior Tendon in the Syndesmosis: A Case Report.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2015 Sep-Oct;54(5):962-6. Epub 2014 May 17.

Orthopaedic Surgeon, BC Foot and Ankle Clinic, St. Paul's Hospital; and Clinical Associate Professor, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Although ankle fracture-dislocations are common orthopedic injuries, it is very uncommon for them to be irreducible, and such cases require special attention. We report the case of a closed fracture-dislocation of the ankle in a 17-year-old male that required 3 surgeries because of persistent anterior subluxation of the talus on the postoperative radiographs. After advanced radiologic investigations, tibialis posterior tendon interposition in the syndesmosis was identified as the cause of the subluxation. Read More

The unexpected with ankle fracture: traumatic tibialis posterior tendon dislocation: a case report and literature review.

Foot Ankle Spec 2013 Dec 11;6(6):482-9. Epub 2013 Sep 11.

Waterford Regional Hospital, Waterford City, Ireland.

Traumatic dislocation of tibialis posterior is infrequently reported in the literature. It is rare but potential cause of persistent pain that can be easily missed. Concomitant ankle fracture may obscure the clinical picture and if unsuspected, consequences such as iatrogenic injury to tibialis posterior tendon while fixing the medial malleolus may occur.
