PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the biomechanical results from the in vitro reconstruction of medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) using a navigation-assisted technique on a cadaveric model and its effects on patellar stability and kinematics. The authors investigated the hypothesis that patellar kinematics after reconstruction with a(More)
PURPOSE The design of the trochlear compartment is crucial in patellofemoral arthroplasty (PFA), because 78% of patients with isolated patellofemoral arthritis present concomitant trochlear dysplasia with patellar maltracking and therefore remain predisposed to post-operative patellar subluxation and dislocation. The study investigated whether current PFA(More)
Trochleoplasty is a surgical procedure which was initially reserved for the refractory cases where previous surgery has failed, but has become more popular in the past years because of a better knowledge of the knee anatomy and biomechanics and a greater availability of surgical instruments. The technical difficulty of the sulcus-deepening trochleoplasty(More)
