bone-patellar tendon-bone

Also found in: Acronyms.

bone–patellar tendon–bone



An autologous graft used to repair a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament. It consists of the central portion of the patellar tendon linked to a segment of bone taken from the patella (colloquially the kneecap) and a segment extracted from the tibia (the shin).
