Patellar tendon avulsion repairs are a frequent necessity in knee arthroplasty and revisions. These repairs are often accompanied by compromised healing from previous surgeries, resulting in devitalization of tissues and vascular support with scar tissue formation. This study describes the use of a dynamic and flexible leash to limit excursion of the patella while protecting the fragile repair.
