Abstract

The management of recalcitrant patellar tendinopathies in the athletic population can be vexing to both the surgeon
and patient. To date the majority of treatments for this disease pathology are non-surgical in nature. When surgical
intervention is required, open debridement and/or tendon take-down with repair has been necessary. We propose
a novel technique for the treatment of insertional patellar tendinopathies and symptomatic partial tearing utilizing a
bio-inductive implant.
