Quadriceps Tendon Graft

Abstract

The indications for the quadriceps tendon anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction technique are the same for any ACL reconstruction. This procedure is indicated in patients with an ACL-deficient knee and instability, who are not willing to give up high-demand sports, with reparable meniscal tears, or with a failed prior ACL reconstruction.This article reviews the indications and contraindications; principles; and surgical technique for the quadriceps tendon anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction technique.
