Open Full-Thickness Quadriceps Tendon Autograft Harvest With Repair for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction.

ABSTRACT: Historically, one of the most common graft choices for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction in the pediatric population has been the hamstring autograft. Although pediatric ACL reconstructions with a hamstring autograft have allowed a majority of children and adolescents to return to athletics, it has been reported that anywhere between 6% and 38% of these patients will go on to experience subsequent graft rupture. The quadriceps tendon autograft is an alternative to the hamstring tendon autograft that demonstrates superior preliminary outcomes, and we currently recommend it for skeletally immature patients undergoing primary and revision ACL reconstruction. This paper aims to describe our technique for an open full-thickness quadriceps tendon harvest with repair.
