Flexor hallucis tendon transfer with an interference screw for chronic achilles tendinosis: a report of 62 cases.
Cottom JM, Hyer CF, Berlet GC, Lee TH.
Foot Ankle Spec. 2008 Oct;1(5):280-7
Quote:
Chronic disorders of the Achilles tendon are frequently treated by foot and ankle surgeons. A number of surgical techniques have been described for treating chronic degenerative Achilles tendinosis. This is the largest reported series evaluating a method of transferring the flexor hallucis longus (FHL) tendon and securing it with an Arthrex interference screw into the calcaneus. Sixty-two patients with Achilles tendinosis underwent Achilles debridement and transfer of the FHL tendon for chronic conditions when greater than 50% of the tendon was involved. All 62 patients were followed for an average of 26.97 months. A modified American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society score was evaluated both preoperatively and postoperatively and demonstrated significant improvement. Because of the anatomical relationship of the FHL tendon to the Achilles tendon and the fact that both tendons act in the same phase, transfer of this tendon in chronic Achilles tendinosis or rupture is a reasonable option. The described technique is advantageous in that it is simple to perform and is less time-consuming than other reported methods. The authors have had no revisions to date.

Endoscopic treatment of chronic mid-portion Achilles tendinopathy: novel technique with short-term results.
Thermann H, Benetos IS, Panelli C, Gavriilidis I, Feil S.
Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc. 2009 Oct;17(10):1264-9.

In this prospective study, we present the short-term clinical results of a novel endoscopic surgical technique for patients suffering from chronic painful mid-portion Achilles tendinopathy. Eight consecutive patients (seven men and one woman, mean age 52 years) diagnosed with chronic painful mid-portion Achilles tendinopathy were included in this study and were treated with endoscopic debridement of the ventral neovascularized area, the peritendineum and the Achilles tendon. Patients recorded the function of the Achilles tendon and the severity of Achilles tendon pain during tendon loading activity, pre and postoperatively in a visual analogue scale. Patient global satisfaction was also assessed in a similar manner. Patients were followed-up for 6 months. All patients experienced immediate postoperative pain relief. In terms of Achilles tendon pain, the median visual analogue score (VAS) increased from 40 (10-60) (preoperatively) to 97.5 (85-100) (last follow-up examination). In terms of Achilles tendon function, the median VAS increased from 22.5 (0-30) (preoperatively) to 90 (80-95) (last follow-up examination). In terms of global satisfaction, the median VAS in the last follow-up examination was 85 (70-95). No postoperative complications were recorded. In conclusion, the short-term clinical results were satisfactory.
