A selection of published medical articles (most recent first)  about Patellar Tendon and Quads Tendon Rupture. We have dealt with Patellar Fractures in a separate section.

Because our team are always combing the medical literature for their editorial work, we thought it might be useful to others to see what we have been reading, and have put a link to the abstract available on PubMed. Where possible, we have located a copy of the full article and added a link, but your local library will also be able to obtain a reprint for you.
