When A Posterior Tibial Tendon Rupture Is Combined With A Spring Ligament Injury

The posterior tibial tendon is a frequently injured tendon in the foot and the rupture of this tendon has received increased attention in the literature since Key first described it in 1953. 1 Failure of the posterior tibial tendon results in adult-acquired flatfoot deformity. The medial longitudinal arch’s mechanical integrity relies on the dynamic support of muscles, the static support of ligaments and joint capsules, and the behavior in which the tarsal bones interlock
