This study looked at different measurements on x-rays and MRIs to assess patellofemoral instability.
A new study from researchers in Portugal describe yet another procedure to treat patellar instability. Instead of a two arm ligament reconstruction, they describe a four arm reconstruction — which could have some advantages.
I’ll be moderating this surgical demo: “MPFL/MQTFL Reconstruction; Lateral Retinacular Lengthening/Reconstruction” by Kristofer Jones, MD, which is part of this year’s ISMF Conference surgical demos!
Brenda Yee had a medial meniscus tear that could be arthroscopically repaired and thus, spare her from needing knee replacement further down the road.
One of the complications I see occasionally with BTB (patellar tendon) grafts for ACL reconstruction is scarring of the patellar tendon and resulting patella baja.
Here’s a relatively small study that suggests that we may be able to get ACLs to heal faster by using platelet rich plasma (PRP). Can ACLs heal faster using platelet rich plasma?
