Isolated medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction (iMPFLR) is increasingly used for the surgical treatment of recurrent patellofemoral instability.
Combined Reconstruction of the Medial Patellofemoral Ligament (MPFL) and Medial Quadriceps Tendon-Femoral Ligament (MQTFL) for Patellar Instability in Children and Adolescents: Surgical Technique and Outcomes.
A variety of surgical options exist to treat the challenging problem of recurrent patellar instability in children and adolescents. The goal of the current study is to describe a novel combined recons...
Patellofemoral instability commonly occurs in the young patient, and, often, skeletal immaturity may be a risk factor for possible recurrence. Treatment considerations, including operative and nonoper...
The patellofemoral joint is thought to be a common source for knee pain. Improper alignment and function of the patellofemoral joint can lead to abnormal contact pressures, which may explain patients'...
Genu valgum is a risk factor for patellar instability. The study purpose was to report on preliminary results of medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction and simultaneous growth modulation...
The operative management of chronic patellar instability has been controversial. Medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction has gained success recently and might be superior to other so...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction results in superior functional outcomes compared to medial retinacular plication surgery in ...
We plan to perform a prospective observational cohort study of patients undergoing MPFL reconstruction for the treatment of episodic patellar instability in the absence of significant dege...
The investigators hypothesis is lateral retinaculum release has no effect on treatment of Patellar Recurrent Dislocation with Medial Patellofemoral Ligament (MPFL) reconstruction.
Persistent rotational instability after standard ACL reconstruction have been extensively described, and it has been shown to keep straight correlation with worse outcomes post-operatively...

Fixation of the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT, during surgical reconstruction, by the use of a bone-patellar tendon graft.
Fixation of the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT, during surgical reconstruction, by the use of a bone- patellar tendon autograft.
A band of fibrous tissue that attaches the apex of the PATELLA to the lower part of the tubercle of the TIBIA. The ligament is actually the caudal continuation of the common tendon of the QUADRICEPS FEMORIS. The patella is embedded in that tendon. As such, the patellar ligament can be thought of as connecting the quadriceps femoris tendon to the tibia, and therefore it is sometimes called the patellar tendon.
The ligament that travels from the medial epicondyle of the FEMUR to the medial margin and medial surface of the TIBIA. The medial meniscus is attached to its deep surface.
