Quad Tendon Repair with PARS System Technique

Ruptures of the quadriceps and patellar tendons are common in elite and recreational athletes. Most surgeons treat these injuries surgically to lessen the risk of long-term disability and morbidity. Historically, open techniques have been used for rupture repairs but may be complicated by wound-healing issues and infection. The minimally invasive Percutaneous Achilles Repair System (PARS) technique can be used to treat quadriceps, patellar, and Achilles tendon ruptures.

The PARS system helps facilitate consistently reliable capture of the distal aspect of the quadriceps tendon and includes color-coded FiberWire® and FiberTape® sutures. The anatomically contoured guide is reusable, while the suture and passing needles come packaged in a convenient kit. The PARS system provides the option of using transverse or locking sutures, or both. The colored FiberWire sutures offer a more organized approach to identifying and securing matched pairs.
