Vastus Lateralis Tendons

Summary Information: Vastus Lateralis Tendons

Vastus Lateralis Tendons: The vastus lateralis tendons are bands of connective tissue made of collagen that attach the paired vastus lateralis muscles to bone. The vastus lateralis tendons merge with some tendons of other quadriceps muscles to form the quadriceps tendon, which inserts on the patella. The vastus lateralis tendons enable the contracting vastus lateralis muscles to extend the knees.

Conditions that can afflict the rectus femoris tendons include tendonitis, tears, rupture, and strains.
