Decreased ratios of lateral to medial patellofemoral forces and pressures after lateral retinacular release and gender knees in total knee arthroplasty


To demonstrate that lateral to medial patellofemoral force and pressure ratios could be a surrogate marker of retinacular tension and patellar tracking. The patellofemoral forces of six knees from three fresh-frozen half-body female cadavers were evaluated with a capacitive sensor under simulated operative conditions in six staged clinical scenarios: native… (More)
