Quadriceps Femoris Tendon

Last Updated: Jun 11, 2015

The quadriceps femoris tendon connects the four muscles of the quadriceps femoris muscle to the ilium and femur. This includes a common patellar tendon, which passes over the front of the knee and attaches to the patella (knee cap). This tendon then continues as the patellar ligament to the tibia (lower leg bone).
