Abstract: Although spontaneous rupture of the Knee extensor mechanism is frequently described in patients with uremia undergoing maintenance hemodialysis, simultaneous ruptures of bilateral knee extensor tendons is a rarely reported condition. In this report, we present a case of simultaneous quadriceps and patellar tendon rupture in a 53-year-old man with chronic renal failure, who was treated surgically by osteotendinous repair on both sides, with supplemental cerclage wire fixation for the patellar tendon rupture with satisfactory results.
