FDL Tendon Transfer

FDL tendon transfer is used for posterior tibial tendon dysfunction. Arthrex has developed the Tenodesis Tension-Slide Technique for FDL tendon transfer. The flexor digitorum longus tendon is traced to the master knot of Henry and harvested. It is then transferred to the navicular and stabilized with the DX button on the dorsal cortex as well as a Tenodesis screw for aperture fixation. This procedure can be done in conjunction with the InternalBrace™ augmentation repair of the spring ligament.
