This was a quantitative study of the major anatomical structures associated with instability of the patellofemoral joint: the quadriceps muscles and the femoral trochlear groove. The attachments of the muscles to the patella, their lines of action, and their relative sizes (physiological cross-sectional areas) were found. On the basis of the physiological cross-sectional areas, it was estimated that the central muscles-the rectus femoris and vastus intermedius-contributed 35% of the quadriceps… CONTINUE READING
