Middle of the foot an ideal drilling spot following tibialis anterior tendon transfer, study says
The drill hole for a tibialis anterior tendon transfer should be aimed at the middle of the foot in the transverse and longitudinal planes, according to a study presented here. Christof Radler, MD, presented his study at the EFORT Congress 2010. "While treating the hole or passing the sutures through the plantar aspect of the foot, there is the potential of neurovascular damage," Radler said. "So we did a study to evaluate the structures within."
