PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical results of medial retinaculum plasty (MRP) and medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction (MPFLR) with concomitant lateral retinacular release with respect to imaging and functional results. METHODS Seventy patients with recurrent patellar instability were randomly divided into 2 groups based on their birth years (even/odd), receiving either MRP or MPFLR. Lateral retinacular release was also performed in all patients… CONTINUE READING
