Abstract

Dislocation of the tibialis posterior tendon (PTT) is a rare traumatic injury, and treatment is often delayed. Conservative treatment is ineffective for recurrent dislocation of the PTT; however, a reference standard procedure has not yet been established. In the present case report, we describe an innovative pseudo-pouch closing procedure with suture tape and a suture anchor for recurrent PTT dislocation. The patient returned to preoperative levels of activity at 21 weeks postoperatively and was asymptomatic at the 1-year follow-up examination.
