Abstract

A simple operative method for the treatment of patellar tendon rupture is introduced. The operative procedure is described and we present the short-term results of the first seven patellar tendon ruptures that have been treated accordingly at our clinic. The technique is easily reproducible and utilizes a minimum of foreign body implant. A secondary procedure for removal of suture material is rarely necessary.
