Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction and MRI

J Foot Ankle Surg. 1993 Sep-Oct;32(5):467-72.


Posterior tibial dysfunction can lead to disabling weightbearing symptoms and progressive pes planovalgus deformity. The different types of pathology are reviewed and three case reports are presented in this article. The use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in diagnosing and in treatment planning is discussed, and emphasis is made for MRI as the preferred study for posterior tibial dysfunction.
