Evolution of Quadriceps Tendon Repair

Suture anchor repair has demonstrated to be a viable option for treating quadriceps tendon ruptures. These suture anchor-based repairs have the strength equivalent to bone tunnel repairs and avoids the potential complication of postoperative fracture. Likewise, the anchors can be placed through a smaller incision than using tunnels. Thick, tough sutures can be used to improve the strength of the suture-tendon interface, and lead to a stronger repair construct than surgeon-tied knots. Additional minimally invasive techniques have been used to help decrease post-operative pain and give a more cosmetically appealing result.
