Abstract
The patient was a 40-year-old female who had been treated at our hospital for left peroneal tendonitis due to an ankle sprain 2 years earlier. She re-injured that ankle while dancing. The pain in the lateral left foot soon improved, but she had difficulty standing with the left foot in equinus. Complete peroneus longus and brevis tendon ruptures were diagnosed. The ipsilateral semitendinosus and gracilis tendons were harvested and used to reconstruct the tendons. Three months after surgery, the patient was able to stand in equinus, and at 5 months after surgery she resumed her original level of sports activities.
