Double-Bundle Medial Patellofemoral Ligament Reconstruction With Allograft


Abstract

Medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction is the treatment of choice for recurrent patellofemoral instability. Although attention to MPFL reconstruction in the orthopaedic literature has increased dramatically in recent years, there is no clear consensus on surgical technique, graft option, or method of fixation. Nevertheless, most studies have shown improved pain scores and low rates […]

Patellar Fresh Osteochondral Allograft Transplantation


Abstract

Chondral defects of the patellofemoral joint remain a difficult-to-treat pathology with limited long-term results. Currently available techniques to treat large or unipolar chondral defects of the patella include autologous chondrocyte implantation and osteochondral allograft transplantation. Despite the recent advances in orthobiologic adjuncts, there is no single gold-standard surgical approach to this difficult-to-treat pathology in […]

Osteoarticular Allograft Transplantation of the Trochlear Groove for Trochlear Dysplasia

2018 JBJS

Chronic patellar instability after a primary dislocation event is common, and reasons for recurrent dislocations are multifactorial . Risk factors include trochlear dysplasia, insufficiencies in the medial stabilizing retinacular structures, increased tibial tubercle-to-trochlear groove (TT- TG) distance, and patella. Trochlear dysplasia reportedly is present in 85% of […]
