Medial Patellofemoral Ligament Reconstruction in a Revision Setting: Anchor and Interference Screw Fixation

Home/Knee/Medial Patellofemoral Ligament Reconstruction in a Revision Setting: Anchor and Interference Screw Fixation

Project Description

Recurrent patellar instability is a common pathology and typically affects younger and more active patients. To prevent complete lateral dislocation of the patella, several osseous and soft-tissue procedures have been previously described, including reconstruction of the medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL), which has been identified as the primary medial stabilizer of the patella. Several effective techniques have been reported for reconstruction of the MPFL. For those who do not have increased angles on examination and imaging, this is my preferred technique, comprising anchor as well as interference screw fixation, for reconstruction of the MPFL in a primary or revision setting.
