Epidemiology of patellar instability is not fully characterized, as some studies have produced conflicting information or been drawn from limited populations. In this study, we used the Pediatric Health Information System (PHIS) database to examine trends in admissions for patellar instability throughout the United States. We hypothesized that there would be an increasing rate of patellar instability admissions in recent years. Secondarily, we examined how demographic factors and insurance status relate to admissions for patellar instability.

The national Epithor database was initiated in 2003 in France. Fifteen years on, a quality assessment of the recorded data seemed necessary. This study examines the completeness of the data recorded i...
For recurrent lateral patellar instability surgical algorithm, an arthroscopic assessment of patellar tracking can aid with the decision of adding a tibial tubercle transfer procedure based on knee fl...
It is unclear which patients with recurrent patellar instability require a bony procedure in addition to medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction.
The Norwich Patellar Instability (NPI) score is a tool for evaluating the impact of patellofemoral instability on joint function. It has not been translated or culturally adapted for the Brazilian pop...
Patellar instability is a common problem in Down syndrome patients since their childhood. Several treatment have been proposed, but relapses are frequent and not all surgeries are suitable for growing...
Patellar instability (recurrent patellar dislocation) can occur at any age. It is most often seen in young subjects, especially among adolescents. It is commonly accompanied by anatomical ...
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 ...
Computational simulation will be performed to represent motion of knees with a dislocating kneecap. Common surgical treatment methods will be simulated and anatomical parameters commonly a...
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 operative management of chronic patellar instability has been controversial. Medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction has gained success recently and might be superior to other so...
Hospital department responsible for the flow of patients and the processing of admissions, discharges, transfers, and also most procedures to be carried out in the event of a patient's death.
Subsequent admissions of a patient to a hospital or other health care institution for treatment.
A bibliographic database that includes MEDLINE as its primary subset. It is produced by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), part of the NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE. PubMed, which is searchable through NLM's Web site, also includes access to additional citations to selected life sciences journals not in MEDLINE, and links to other resources such as the full-text of articles at participating publishers' Web sites, NCBI's molecular biology databases, and PubMed Central.
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.
Review of the medical necessity of hospital or other health facility admissions, upon or within a short time following an admission, and periodic review of services provided during the course of treatment.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
