摘要

Thirty-five patients with traumatic patellar tendon ruptures treated with primary repair and neutralization wire were retrospectively reviewed. The length of follow up ranged from 1.5 years to 5 years with an average follow up period of 20 months. All the ruptures occurred due to acute trauma, twelve of them (34%) involved in a multiple injuries, and nineteen had an open wounds around the knee joints. The diagnostic clues included a high riding patella by palpation or by X-ray, hemoarthrosis, a palpable gap over the tendon; and being unable to extend the knee actively. Using the criteria of Siwek and Rao, at follow up 57% were rated as excellent, 28.6% good; and 14.2% unsatisfactory. None of the 35 patients had a rerupture of tendon. It is recommended that primary repair with a neutralization wire can be a treatment of choice for traumatic patellar tendon ruptures.
