Summary: We describes an original technique of harvesting, preparation, application and final results of the Double Tendon Quadriceps Graft (DTQ) in multiligamentary knee injuries.


This paper describes an original technique of harvesting, preparation, application and final results of the Double Tendon Quadriceps Graft (DTQ) in a multiligamentary (ACL, PCL and MCL) knee injury, secondary to a high energy trauma.
Original description of a novel, unpublished technique of harvesting two quality grafts for the reconstruction of central pivot knee injuries.
An arthroscopic single bundle ACL/PCL reconstruction was performed with the single autologous quadriceps tendon graft, divided into two applying DTQ technique, at the same surgical time.
With the DTQ graft technique multiple grafting, donor site morbidity was avoided and even reduced the allograft need. Another advantage of this technique was to keep the Hamstrings tendons as an option for a medial ligament reconstruction.
We propose the autologous Double Tendon Quadriceps graft (DTQ) for single-bundle ACL/PCL arthroscopic reconstructions in low-demand patients, with or without associated collateral ligaments injuries.
An original procedure, not described in the literature, technically easy to reproduce and applicable.
