Material and structural tensile properties of the human medial patello-femoral ligament.

Abstract

The medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) is considered the most important passive patellar stabilizer and acts 50-60% of the force of the medial soft-tissue which restrains the lateralization of the patella between 0° and 30°. In this work, 24 human knees have been tested to evaluate the material properties of MPFL and to determine the structural behavior… (More)
