Resumen

Cryogenic thermal necrosis after knee surgery is rare. We describe a patient who presented with an anterior knee soft tissue defect in conjunction with an extensor mechanism deficiency secondary to a cold thermal injury after an anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. We treated the patient with a single stage surgical procedure combining patellar tendon reconstruction and soft tissue coverage utilizing the superficial portion of the patient's vascularized Achilles tendon attached to a medial gastrocnemius flap. The patient returned to unrestricted activities and has demonstrated this through a five year follow-up.
