Simultaneous bilateral avulsion of the quadriceps and Achilles tendons in 1 limb and of the patellar tendon in the other in a hyperparathyroid patient on chronic hemodialysis



Simultaneous bilateral avulsion of the quadriceps and Achilles tendons in 1 limb and of the patellar tendon in the other in a hyperparathyroid patient on chronic hemodialysis



Revue de Chirurgie Orthopedique et Reparatrice de l'Appareil Moteur 64(2): 175-181



A case of simultaneous rupture of three tendons is reported in a patient who had suffered a bilateral nephrectomy six years earlier and was on chronic haemodialysis. The quadriceps tendon and the patellar tendon were repaired surgically. The rupture of the tendo Achillis was left untreated. Six days later a parathyroidectomy was performed; nine months later recovery was excellent. A review of the literature has been made. The role of hyperparathyroidism in the strength of the bone-tendon junction is discussed.
