28320 Repair, nonunion or malunion; tarsal bones (this includes the calcaneus, one of the tarsal bones.)
I agree with 28320, that one is a bit confusing as many people are not aware that the calcanus is included in the tarsal bones.

The op report says that... Two drill holes were then placed in the fibula tendons was grasped with FiberWire passing through in a mattress fashion and tying it down. This reduced the subluxed peroneal external tendon as well.

Try looking at 27675.
