Background: The transfer of Flexor Hallucis Longus Tendon (FHL) is an established method for the treatment of chronic Achilles tendon ruptures. An extensive examination of power, strength, endurance and complications related to this procedure is presented. Methods: 21 patients treated with open FHL transfer for chronic Achilles tendon rupture were studied retrospectively Thomas O. Clanton, MD (Vail, CO), demonstrates an FHL tendon transfer using the Arthrex FHL Implant System with Tension-Slide technique and Achilles SpeedBri.. hallucis longus tendon (FHL), discuss its anatomical and surgical considerations, and to expand upon its relevance as an ideal transfer candidate. ANATOMY Located in the deep posterior compartment of the leg, the flexor hallucis longus muscle originates from the inferior two-thirds of the posterior aspect of the fibula, the lowe Haglund's Deformity Resection . Fixation is usually done using Arthrex SpeedBridge Anchors.Most of the time, I will also perform an FHL tendon transfer to the calcaneus. This is where I take one of the two tendons that goes to the big toe and use it to augment the Achilles tendon
Introduction: Flexor hallucis longus (FHL) tendon transfer to the calcaneus is commonly used in the surgical treatment of chronic Achilles tendinopathy. This study assesses the integrity of FHL tendon biotenodesis screw fixation with respect to 2 variables: incorporation of a terminal whipstitch and tunnel depth Flexor hallucis longus (FHL) transfer is a well-established treatment option in failed Achilles tendon (AT) repair and has been routinely performed as an open procedure. We detail the surgical steps needed to perform an arthroscopic transfer of the FHL for a chronic AT rupture. The FHL tendon is harvested as it enters in its tunnel beneath the sustentaculum tali; a tunnel is then drilled in. Abstract: Flexor hallucis longus (FHL) transfer is a well-established treatment option in failed Achilles tendon (AT) repair and has been routinely performed as an open procedure. We detail the surgical steps needed to perform an arthroscopic transfer of the FHL for a chronic AT rupture
Background: In stage II PTTD, flexor digitorum longus (FDL) tendon transfer with an adjunctive bony procedure is the most common method of surgical correction. This paper presents an alternative method of fixation with a biotenodesis interference screw (Arthrex Biotenodesis Screw System) that allows proper tensioning of the FDL tendon transfer , Setup, Portals and Techniques (Anterior Decompression, Loosen Bodies, Synovitis and Talar Osteochondral Defect, Os Trigonum Excision, Talocrural and Subtalar Fusion, Arthroscopic FHL-Transfer Flexor hallucis longus (FHL) transfer is a well-established treatment option in failed Achilles tendon (AT) repair and has been routinely performed as an open procedure. Arthrex) is applied on the distal end of the FHL and will allow for its shuttling through the calcaneal tunnel, as well as adequate grasping for tensioning before final.
Fixation of the FHL tendon with a tenodesis screw enables a less invasive procedure to be undertaken and shows similar biomechanical behaviour and primary strength compared with fixation using a transosseus suture.

The tendinous end of the advanced gastrocnemius muscle was sutured to the distal end using an end to end repair. In case of insertional tear, the advanced gastrocnemius tendon was anchored to calcaneum using suture anchor (5.5-mm Corkscrew, Arthrex suture). Short FHL tendon transfer was performed in all these patients as an augmentation procedure Flexor Hallucis Longus (FHL) Tendon Transfer is an autologous tendon transfer procedure intended to reinforce a severely diseased or mid-substance ruptured Achilles tendon. The FHL Tendon is released proximal to the calcaneus, sutured to the Achilles, and fixated distally to the superior-posterior calcaneus with an anchor
Codingline Response: CPT 27691 (transfer or transplant of single. tendon [with muscle redirection or rerouting]; deep) is the proper code for transferring the. flexor digitorum longus tendon to replace the. damaged posterior tibial tendon. CPT 27658 (repair, flexor tendon, leg; primary, without graft, each tendon) would be used to tensor hallucis longus transfer into the flexor hallucis longus tendon just proximal to the first metatarsal head (Fig. 9-1). The authors thought that procedures -move the deforming force of the clawed hallux and at the same time dorsiflex the foot were not mechani- cally correct. They based their theory on the supposi Peroneus brevis transfer has been described, although a major concern is increased ankle instability and the development of foot inversion. Flexor digitorum longus (FDL) transfer can also be used, but is significantly weaker than the FHL (by approximately 50 per cent) and its new course could cross the tibial nerve FDL transfer. The FDL is identiﬁed at the Knot of Henry and 2-0 Ethibond suture is used for tenodesis of the ﬂexor hallucis longus and FDL. The FDL is then transected proximal to the tenodesis and No. 2 Looped FiberWire (Arthrex, Naples) is placed in the distal FDL stump for the transfer to the navicular. The media

In suture group specimens (Fig. 1), a transverse bone tunnel was placed in a mediolateral direction on the posterosuperior aspect of the tuber calcanei and the tendon was passed from medial. The endoscopic FHL tendon transfer provides a mechanical and vascular support to the injured AT. As a result, the transferred FHL tendon might improve the vascularity and the pathological AT healing process. In our experience, the FHL tendon transfer provides a faster return to daily and sports activities of the patients
