Abbas MJ, Jildeh TR, Buckley P, Mehran N, and Okoroha KR. Anterior Cruciate Reconstruction with Quadriceps Autograft using QuadLink Anterior Cruciate Ligament FiberTag TightRope Implant. Arthroscopy Techniques 2021; 10(5):e1389-e1394
Quadriceps tendon autografts have been shown to be a reliable option for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. The graft allows for optimal functional outcomes while reducing donor site morbidity. Although quadriceps graft fixation can be achieved using a variety of techniques, there is a lack of consensus on the optimal technique. Additionally, femoral fixation techniques have variance in durability and reproducibility. The purpose of this Technical Note and video is to provide our preferred method of quadriceps tendon autograft preparation and fixation using the Quad Link ACL FiberTag TightRope Implant in a single-bundle ACL reconstruction.
