FHL Tendon Transfer

FHL tendon transfer is used for reinforcement of an Achilles repair. Arthrex has developed the Tenodesis Tension-Slide Technique for FHL tendon transfer. The flexor hallucis longus tendon is traced to the calcaneus and harvested. The Tenodesis Graft Sizing Kit is used to determine the tendon diameter and which size implant system to open. The FHL tendon is then transferred to the posterior calcaneus and stabilized with the DX button on the plantar cortex, as well as a Tenodesis screw for aperture fixation.
