Résumé
Closed rupture of the tibialis anterior tendon is a rare injury, and it usually affects individuals older than 50 years of age. This rare injury tends to occur spontaneously, and this often delays diagnosis and adequate treatment. Although direct surgical repair of the ruptured tibialis anterior tendon is generally considered the treatment of choice, nonanatomic repair, tendon lengthening, or tendon transfer might be necessary in cases where shortening of the muscle-tendon unit has taken place. In this report, we describe 2 cases that involved the surgical repair of closed ruptures of the tibialis anterior tendon. In the first case, direct repair was undertaken at approximately 6 months after the onset of symptoms, and in the second case repair of the tibialis anterior tendon required augmentation tenodesis with the extensor retinaculum. Level of Clinical Evidence: 4.
