Flexor Hallucis Longus (FHL) Tendon Transfer

A Flexor Hallucis Longus Tendon transfer is used to aid in chronic Achilles tendonopathy. An FHL transfer is performed to augment an Achilles reconstruction utilizing Arthrex Tenodesis Screw™ technology. The tendon is excised either medially or laterally and transferred into a bone tunnel in the calcaneus bone. Final fixation is achieved with a screw from the Bio-Tenodesis™ Screw System.
