- What's Included
For Patellar Tendon Reconstruction
The PatellarTape System comprises a wide, open weave Poly-Tape implant (30 mm x 800 mm) with associated disposable instrumentation to repair a ruptured patellar tendon, without the need to harvest autogenous tissue.
How it Works
The Poly-Tape is passed transversely through the distal quadriceps tendon at its patellar insertion
The Poly-Tape is crossed over itself and the medial end is passed through the bone tunnel
Both ends are secured to the lateral tibial metaphysis by knotting the free ends of the Poly-Tape. Alternatively, two bone staples can be used under the cover of the tibialis anterior muscle
A 4.5 mm hole is drilled from the lateral side
