Chan, of the McCaig Institute for Bone and Joint Health, both in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, analyzed five-year, disease-specific quality-of-life (QOL) outcomes in three groups of 110 patients ages 14 to 50 years who were randomly assigned to receive ACL reconstruction with a patellar
tendon graft, a quadruple-stranded hamstring tendon construct, or a double-bundle hamstring tendon construct.
Improving the alignment of the patellar
ligament will often help the patella to track more evenly against the walls of the trochlear groove.
This textbook explains management principles and operative techniques for patellar
We recently suggested that epigenetic modifications, such as DNA methylation, might explain discrepant association signals sometimes obtained in studies on human patellar
tendinopathy (El Khoury et al., 2018).
dislocation is defined as a disruption of a normal patellar
position in the trochlear groove.
no history or diagnosis of patellar
tendinopathy; and 4.
The aim of the study is to evaluate the overall outcome, both subjective and objective, of Medial Patellofemoral Ligament (MPFL) reconstruction in cases of recurrent patellar
maltracking measurements were performed and two groups were compared with each other.
Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using the medial third of the patellar
Beyond simply identifying increasing radiographic severity of the affected knee as having an association with improved patient outcomes, we aimed to determine the association of discrete radiographic variables, such as mechanical alignment, osteophyte size, location, and subluxation of the patellar
or tibia, with positive outcomes following surgery.
instability is a complex orthopedic problem, especially due to the multifactorial etiology.
The strong tendon inserts onto the base of the patella, and the stout patellar
ligament continues to the head of the tibia (Romer & Parsons).
Back in October 2017 at Brooklyn Nets' season opener at Indianapolis, Lin ruptured his right patellar
tendon after a drive to the rim.
asymmetry occurs in at least 10% of cases, even amongst expert surgeons , contributing to the approximately 20% of TKA patients who are not satisfied with the result of their surgery [9, 10].
