Dynamic measurement of patellofemoral kinematics and contact pressure after lateral retinacular release: an in vitro study

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of lateral retinacular release and medial and lateral retinacular deficiency on patellofemoral position and retropatellar contact pressure. Human knee specimens (n = 8, mean age = 65 SD 7 years, all male) were tested in a kinematic knee-simulating machine. During simulation of an isokinetic knee… (More)
