Reoperation for rerupture of patellar tendon
« on: September 20, 2008, 11:15:58 PM »
I'd like any information for to be directed to information for the surgery that is done for rerupture of a patellar tendon.  I ruputured it 14weeks ago playing volleyball.  Rehab had gone great - back to full ROM.  I was working on strengthening my L quadricep muscle by swimming.  (I still swim competatively @ age 51 with the local Masters swimming club).  I slipped in the pool locker room and have re-ruptured the L patellar tendon.  The surgeon is operating next week and wants to use a tendon graft/tendon transpostion for the repair.  Can anyone offer any more info?  Thanks

This clinical trial gives good background information, and there are two email addresses that may lead to more advice - http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00716508
