Bilateral patellar tendon rupture: an unusual case of trampoline injury

We report the case of a healthy 44-year-old gentleman who sustained bilateral patellar tendon rupture while jumping on a trampoline. Although this kind of injury has been reported in the literature previously, it is extremely rare in healthy individuals. We believe it is the first documented case associated with the use of a trampoline.
