A cortical bone graft on a muscle pedicle was taken from the ulna and transferred to bridge a complete defect of the radius in 16 dogs. In 14 control dogs a free graft was used, that is, one without a muscle pedicle. Union in the group with pedicle grafts was far superior to that in the group with free grafts, mainly because in those with pedicle grafts there was good subperiosteal new bone formation from active viable periosteum. In six of the pedicle grafts the viability of some osteocytes was retained over a 12-week period and in five the graft was almost completely replaced by new bone.

Subcutaneous rupture of the tendon of tibialis anterior immediately proximal to its insertion affects patients over the age of 45 years and is most common in the seventh decade. The symptoms at the time of rupture are milder than is the case with rupture of the calcaneal tendon and the early disability is slight. Thus, affected patients commonly present several weeks or months after rupture and at a stage when reattachment of the tendon to its normal site of insertion (the most satisfactory surgical management) is impossible. Although the disability is slight if repair is not performed, there should be no disability after surgical repair and this should be offered to those patients who lead an active life and who present in the first three months after rupture. The relevant literature is reviewed and experience with four further patients is recounted.
