OBJECTIVE The "prepatellar quadriceps continuation" is the appropriate designation for the deepest soft-tissue layer that lies anterior to the patella, related to the deep rectus femoris tendinous fibers. The purpose of this study was to define and investigate the prepatellar quadriceps continuation and its relationship with the patella in cadavers using MRI and gross anatomic and histologic analyses. MATERIALS AND METHODS MRI of 12 fresh-frozen knee specimens was performed using T1-weighted… CONTINUE READING
