About integrated imaging of complete peroneus brevis tendon rupture.
Peroneal tendons are frequently causes of lateral ankle pain and instability.
This is the case of a patient with an history of chronic ankle instability; gross irregularity of the retromalleolar groove and peroneal tubercle are evident.
The best way to understand the entire pathologic picture is to combine Mri and dynamic ultrasound imaging; on the video below you can appreciate the gross irregularity of the cortical surface that is the site of chronic tendon impingement. Repetitive microtraumas lead to complete tendon rupture.
