Twenty-seven adolescents with anterior knee pain with or without patellar instability were studied by comput erized tomography to detect patellofemoral malalign ment. The examination was performed with and without quadriceps contraction with the knee flexed to 15°. Con gruence angle, patellar tilt angle, sulcus angle, and trochlear depth were measured. This investigation showed the well-known types of patellofemoral mal alignment with quadriceps relaxed (tilted, lateralized, lateralized, and… CONTINUE READING
