The purpose of this study was to use a validated capacitive pressure (Novel Electronics, Inc, St Paul, Minn) in the measurement and distribution of patellofemoral forces and pressures during simulated operative procedures. Six fresh frozen cadaver knees were evaluated through a range of motion and observations recorded in native knees (NKNP) with sequential resurfacing of tibiofemoral (RKNP) and patellofemoral (RKRP) articulations with standard and gender (GKRP) components. Significant lateral… CONTINUE READING
