The peroneal tendons are essential in the movement and stability of the foot and, therefore, warrant close attention. Recent studies have shown that peroneal tendon problems are more common than previous thought, possible explained by the growth in number of athletes all over the world. With the increase of peroneal tendon problems, the need for greater clarity on various aspects of peroneal tendon problems increases. The purpose of this thesis is to create better insight in the anatomy, diagnostics, treatment and post-treatment of peroneal tendon injuries, contributing to the first international consensus and guideline.
