Both the author’s experience, along with cadaveric and clinical studies, have shown that this technique can restore function and stability. The authors provide step-by-step instruction of their preferred allograft reconstruction technique for chronic peroneal attritional injuries, while limiting the comorbidities that may be seen with autograft reconstruction.
