Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Daily activities, such as walking or running, put a certain degree of stress and demand on the tendons of the lower extremities. To date, there are very few reported cases in the literature concerning pathology of the anterior tibial tendon or muscle. Of those cases reported and discussed, the majority were complete ruptures as a result of an acute forced injury, with very few reports of secondary pathological conditions or laceration injuries. This article is a review of the literature, as well as conservative versus surgical treatment and the sequelae following such injuries.
