BACKGROUND Graft fixation is critical to the restoration of the medial patella of femoral ligament function and long-term success. Numerous fixations at the patella have been described, while the complications including patellar fractures, violation of the posterior patella and delay of tendon-to-bone healing remain significant challenges. Here, we describe a safe and firm fixation at the patellar for medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction and explore the safety angle of drilling… CONTINUE READING
