Abstract

The posterior tibial tendon (PTT) is the most important dynamic stabilizer of the medial ankle and longitudinal arch of the foot. PTT dysfunction is a degenerative disorder of the tendon, which secondarily involves multiple ligaments, joint capsules, fascia, articulations, and bony structures of the ankle, hindfoot, midfoot, and forefoot. When the tendon progressively attenuates, the patient develops a painful, progressive collapsed flatfoot or pes planovalgus deformity. This comprehensive review illustrates the 3-Tesla magnetic resonance imaging (3T MRI) features of PTT dysfunction. In addition, the reader will gain knowledge of the expected pathologic findings on MRI, as they are related to clinical staging of PTT dysfunction.
