CPD/CME Points: 0.5
In the appropriately selected patient a Tibialis posterior tendon debridement and repair will provide a very effective (and rapid) means of both halting symptoms and also possibly progression of the tendon degeneration.
A return to full function is the norm in patients with non-inflammatory conditions as the cause.
Late deterioration is an uncommon event after an initially successful intervention.
