Despite bracing and steroid injections, she had continued symptoms and surgery for hardware removal was recommended. While under anesthesia, she was found to have subluxation of her peroneal tendons.

Hardware removal, a peroneal tenodesis, and reconstruction of the peroneal retinaculum were performed with a good clinical result. Level of Evidence: V (case report).
