Title : Traumatic Patellar tendon Avulsion - Repair using Suture anchors


Traumatic patellar tendon rupture from the tibial insertion is a rare scenario, requiring surgical intervention to restore knee joint functionality for daily activities. The patellar tendon is the most central of the extensor mechanism, Rupture of the patellar tendon means disruption of the extensor mechanism of the knee joint. This condition requires a unique treatment approach, as standard reconstruction techniques do not apply. Since sutures cannot be as easily passed in a transosseous fashion, suture anchors have to be used to reattach the torn ends of the tendon, additionally reinforcement sutures/wires in a figure of eight fashion can be used for augmentation. Timely management with biomechanically strong constructs using appropriate suture devices will restore the knee function to pre-injury levels.
