A long-term prospective study of the Hauser and Roux-Goldthwait procedures for recurrent patellar dislocation.

Abstract

In a prospective study extending from 1966 to 1974, the results of the Hauser procedure were compared with the Roux-Goldthwait procedure for the correction of recurrent dislocations of the patella. In 87 knees in 75 patients, repaired consecutively and in a random manner with one procedure or the other, 100% retrieval was achieved. The average follow-up period was 7.7 years. Significant complications, though not necessarily of long term, occurred in 24 of 47 knees receiving Hauser repairs as compared with 6 of 40 knees in the Roux-Goldthwait group. Satisfactory long-term results were obtained in 72% with the Hauser technique and 93% with the Roux-Goldthwait technique.
