In brief: Patellar tendon
Repair of the patella tendon (pt) requires an incision in front of the knee.
The tendon typically pulls away from the inferior pole of patella. Vertical drill holes made from inferior to superior patella. Stitches are placed through pt, passed through dril holes, and tied over top of patella.
