Isolated avulsion of patellar tendon from tibial tuberosity is a very rare injury in the adults. Spontaneous patellar tendon rupture may result from steroid use, systemic metabolic and inflammatory conditions but these injuries mostly occur at the inferior pole of the patella. As per literature isolated spontaneous complete distal avulsion of the patellar tendon in an otherwise healthy patient is very rare so here we are sharing similar case management with 5-month follow-up. We believe that the management we are discussing allows for early return to activity with good functional outcome. Here we are sharing the successful management and follow-up of a similar case with a different suture material for repair of the tendon, the FiberWire.
