Rupture of the quadriceps tendon is a rare injury. Predispositions such as recurrent microtrauma or degenerative changes are typically present. Clinical examination is typically sufficient to diagnose acute quadriceps tendon ruptures. People older than 40 with underlying medical issues are more likely to get quadriceps tendon ruptures. Early care improves the result and makes the damage debilitating. Radiographs and ultrasonography are frequently necessary for an early diagnosis when the traditional clinical signs are absent.
