ABSTRACT: HASH(0x3ed3968) OBJECTIVES: In some total knee arthroplasty cases, the usual medial parapatellar approach does not allow the appropriate patellar eversion and the desired exposure of the knee joint. Partial disinsertion of the patellar tendon doesn't substantially improve the surgical exposure and can lead to extensor apparatus weakening and complete secondary ruptures, while the V-Y quadricipital plasty leads to post-op immobilization of the knee, which delays the functional rehabilitation, with negative impact on the range of motion...

INTRODUCTION: Patellar tendon rupture is an infrequent but debilitating lesion. Several surgical repairs have been suggested for patellar tendon rupture. Our aim is to propose a modified technique from the classic Achilles allograft procedure. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Five consecutive patients diagnosed with chronic patellar tendon rupture following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were included in the presented study. All patients were operated with a modified Achilles allograft technique, dividing the Achilles tendon into two bundles and overcrossing these through the distal part of the quadricipital tendon...

BACKGROUND: Tendon sheath lipoma is an uncommon tumor characterized morphologically by mature fatty tissue lobes adherent to the tendon or intersecting its fibers. The association with quadriceps tendon rupture is unusual. Etiologic factors that may condition those ruptures have not yet been fully described. However, several authors suggest the existence of a subjacent pathology such as metabolic or inflammatory diseases. Minimal trauma may lead to such ruptures as well as associated ligamentous or bony injuries...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The aim of this study was to evaluate postoperative evolution of anterior laxity, in order to know at what time the elongation of the reconstructed anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) begins to develop after surgery, and if there were any correlations with recuperation of knee flexion or extension. The second purpose of this study was to compare two series of patients operated on by two different procedures for a long standing ACL rupture. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Two series of patients were compared: group I (60 cases), had an ACL reconstruction using a free autologous patellar tendon graft with a bone-to-bone fixation, supplemented by an external extra-articular plasty with a strip of quadricipital tendon as a direct prolongation of the graft of the patellar tendon and patella itself...

PURPOSE OF STUDY: The aim of this study was to evaluate clinical and radiological sequelae following removal of part of the patellar tendon for A.C.L. reconstruction. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A consecutive and homogenous series of 100 patients operated for chronic anterior instability (66 men, 34 women; age 16 to 55 years, average: 28.5 years) was studied. The procedure involved a free patellar tendon graft harvested from the mid third of the tendon and including its bony attachments, and in particular a long strip from the patella and a strip 10 centimeters long from the rectus femoris tendon for extra-articular reconstruction...
