Repair of a torn quadriceps tendon is necessary to restore the extensor mechanism of the knee. Traditional repair involves transosseous sutures tied over bone bridges on the inferior pole of the patella. Suture anchor repair has been shown to be stronger than transosseous repair and facilitates a smaller incision. Suture tape can improve the strength of the suture-tendon interface, and when combined with knotless anchors, leads to a stronger repair construct than even traditional suture anchors and surgeon-tied knots. Here we describe our technique of quadriceps tendon repair using suture tape and knotless anchors.
