The use of suture anchors in repair of the ruptured patellar tendon: a biomechanical study



The use of suture anchors in repair of the ruptured patellar tendon: a biomechanical study



American Journal of Sports Medicine 34(9): 1492-1499



Background: Rupture of the patellar tendon is a disabling injury that usually requires surgical treatment. The standard method of repair involves placing suture loops through transpatellar tunnels.
