BACKGROUND The influence of reconstruction of the medial patellofemoral ligament on the patellofemoral force and pressure distributions has not yet been investigated. HYPOTHESIS Technical errors can cause tension to develop within a reconstructed medial patellofemoral ligament, which will adversely alter the normal patellofemoral force distribution by increasing the load applied to the medial cartilage. STUDY DESIGN Controlled laboratory study. METHODS Four computational knee models were… CONTINUE READING
