Abstract: Recurrent dislocation of peroneal tendons is uncommon and there are few reports of the long-term results after repair. The Singapore operation, first described in 1985, is an anatomical repair based on the Bankart-like lesion seen in the superior peroneal retinaculum. We reviewed 21 patients after a mean follow-up of 9.3 years, and found no recurrence. Eighteen had good functional results and had returned to their previous levels of vocational and sports activities. The three fair results were due to painful scars or neuromas.
