Biomechanical Evaluation of the Medial Stabilizers of the Patella

2018 AJSM

Lateral patellar dislocations are the second leading cause of traumatic knee hemarthroses, and recurrent patellar dislocations often require surgery. The medial knee structures responsible for stabilization of the patellofemoral joint are the medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL), the medial patellotibial ligament (MPTL), and the medial patellomeniscal ligament (MPML).
