Endoscopic Recession of the Gastrocnemius Tendon.
Journal Article (Journal Article)
Gastrocnemius contracture is a common condition associated with painful overload symptoms in the forefoot and midfoot. Multiple techniques have been described for the recession of gastrocnemius tendon in patients who failed nonsurgical treatment. We present an endoscopic recession technique for the release of the gastrocnemius tendon just distal to the level of the musculotendinous junction as a minimally invasive operative option. This technique aims to decrease wound complications, unsightly scar, overlengthening, and postoperative pain, while having versatility for performing with supine or prone positioning.
