BACKGROUND The use of different coordinate system definitions for the patella leads to difficulties in comparing kinematic results between studies. The purpose of this work was to establish the effect of using a range of coordinate system definitions to quantify patellar kinematics. Additionally, intra- and inter-investigator repeatabilities of the digitization of anatomic landmarks on the patella were determined. METHODS Four different patellar coordinate system definitions were applied… CONTINUE READING
