Abstract

This is to report a new technique of performing gastrocnemius recession using an endoscope. The technique performed on a cadaver leg is presented. The procedure can be performed through a small incision using a scope that is developed for performing carpal tunnel release. The fascia of gastrocnemius muscle is clearly visualized and cut. The sheath of the scope protects the sural nerve. Open dissection after the procedure confirmed adequate recession of gastrocnemius fascia and an intact sural nerve in the cadaver leg. It is possible to perform gastrocnemius recession safely, adequately and through a small incision using an endoscope.
