Central quadriceps tendon (CQT) graft has been successfully used as a viable autograft option in cruciate ligament reconstruction of the knee. The prime emphasis in the majority of the literature is given to surgical details of quadriceps graft harvesting and outcome of cruciate ligament reconstruction. There is less discussion about donor site morbidity in CQT graft, and it is less frequent as compared to that in bone patellar tendon bone graft. We report an extremely unusual case of late quadriceps tendon rupture at the donor site following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using CQT graft.

Quadriceps tendon rupture is a rare lesion, occurring most frequently in males over 60 years following a fall or trauma and associated with systemic diseases and risk factors. Bilateral injury is even...
Normal development of the patella typically involves fusion of secondary ossification centers into a single bone during adolescence, with failure of fusion resulting in bipartite and tripartite patell...
This biomechanical cadaveric in vitro study aimed to evaluate and compare the dynamic elongation behavior and ultimate failure strength of tibial adjustable-length loop cortical button versus interfer...
Although tendon elasticity by elastography is useful for diagnosing tendon disorders and planning rehabilitation regimens of the tendon, there are few reports on the quadriceps tendon. Moreover, relat...
The purpose of this randomized study is to compare clinical and functional outcomes of both surgery techniques for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (using quadriceps tendon versus...
To date, the use of the quadriceps tendon as an autograft option in primary paediatric Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction has not been well studied. The 2018 International Oly...
To compare the outcomes of ACL reconstruction using tendons from two tibialis allograft donor age groups.
An anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture is one of the most common sport injuries, which typically develops after a sudden knee torsion. Arthroscopic repair of the ACL is often required...
The purpose of this randomized clinical trial is to determine the difference in quality of life outcome at two years, in patients undergoing an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruct...
A band of fibrous tissue that attaches the apex of the PATELLA to the lower part of the tubercle of the TIBIA. The ligament is actually the caudal continuation of the common tendon of the QUADRICEPS FEMORIS. The patella is embedded in that tendon. As such, the patellar ligament can be thought of as connecting the quadriceps femoris tendon to the tibia, and therefore it is sometimes called the patellar tendon.

Surgical procedure by which a tendon is incised at its insertion and placed at an anatomical site distant from the original insertion. The tendon remains attached at the point of origin and takes over the function of a muscle inactivated by trauma or disease.

A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
