Abstract Dislocation of the peroneal tendons associated with calcaneus fractures should be repaired during fracture fixation to prevent complications. The only documented approach for repair is by proximal extension of the vertical limb of the lateral extensile approach to the calcaneus. However, enlarging the inherently fragile calcaneus flap places it at further risk of damage. Using a separate anterior incision to repair the dislocation, thus avoiding problems caused by excessive flap elevation, seemed intuitive. This approach proved technically effective and reliable in producing favorable outcomes in a series of 14 patients.
