Abstract

Multiligamentous knee injuries with simultaneous patellar tendon ruptures are rare. Surgeons must be prepared to address injured structures of the knee to allow return of knee function. Restoring motion while protecting repairs is important. The authors present 2 cases and discuss treatment strategy for preoperative evaluation, surgical intervention, and postoperative care.
