Abstract

Extensor hallucis longus tendon ruptures of the foot represent about 1% of all tendon injuries [1]. The Extensor Hallucis Longus muscle originates from the front portion anteromedial of the perone on the leg. The main function of this muscle is to assist in extension of the big toe of the foot, where is important to control the forefoot during the swing phase of gait.

This article aims to assess the acute repair in a 67-year-old patient after traumatic rupture of the extensor hallucis longus at the level of the dorsum of the foot. The surgical technique, postoperative management and the results.
