The surgical management of dorsal foot ganglion cysts can be challenging. Recurrence of these cysts has been reported to be as high as 43%. For recurrent lesions arising from an articulation, approaches for reinforcing capsular tissue have been reported. In this report, we describe a technique for addressing a recurrent lesion arising from an extensor tendon sheath. The technique involved cyst excision and tendon replacement with a segment of sheath-less human allograft tendon. At 6 months, the patient was recurrence-free.
