The authors report a case of a sportsman male patient 67 years old with pathological rupture of the tibialis anterior tendon. The patient underwent surgery by a tendon reconstruction using the medial size of the proximal broken tendon for 7 cm. The tendon was anchored to the first cuneiform bone by mean 2 Quick anchors. The authors report a literature review with special attention for anatomical studies regarding the variability of the distal bone insertions of the tibialis anterior tendon.
