Surgical modifications of the biomechanics of osteoarthritic and chondromalacic patellofemoral joints reduce the joint pressure by distributing pressure evenly along the articular surfaces. Forward displacement of the patella tendon lengthens the lever arm of the tendon. It also increases the angle formed by the forces exerted by the quadriceps muscle and by the patella tendon. As a result, the compressive forces transmitted from the femur to the tibia and from the patella to the femur are… CONTINUE READING
