Exposure of the Tendon

The physician should identify the superior border of the pes and incise the fascia. Then, continue the incision medially, in a hockey stick fashion, down the tibia to remove the attachment site. A kocher is used to traction this flap. Look for the most inferior tendon, the semi-t, lift it up with the tip of the scissors or a kocher.
