    I have a symptomatic accessory navicular with PTT pain, swelling and arch pain which did not respond to non invasive treatments such as pt, boot, hard cast, splint etc. An MRI indicated that there was mild micro tearing in the posterior tibilal tendon. I had a modified kidner recently and the doctor was suprised to see the extent of damage to the tendon. There were several large rips and part of the tendon was shredded. Luckily it was successfully repaired (hopefully) and I am now in as cast NWB. How often do you find that the results of an MRI are not consistant with the actual damage?
