Patellar tendinopathy Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Patellar tendinopathy is a common and serious condition in athletes. Although there have been many advances in the understanding of the histopathology, imaging, and surgical outcomes in this condition in the past decade, successful management of athletes with patellar tendinopathy remains a major challenge for both the practitioner and patient. There is a definite need for further prospective studies into etiological factors and randomized controlled trials into treatment choices.
