Subluxation of the peroneal tendons is a relatively uncommon problem, and is often complicated by a delay in diagnosis. The authors present a brief review of the anatomy contributing to this pathologic problem, as well as the classification and treatment options of peroneal tendon subluxation. The authors then present their favored operative technique for the treatment of this problem, involving a distal fibular rotational osteotomy to prevent recurrent peroneal tendon subluxation.
