We performed a retrospective review of all the patients who underwent isolated arthroscopic lateral patella retinacular
release under a single surgeon between July 2007 and July 2010.
The femoral head has an inherently vulnerable blood supply due to its natural course (20) It is fed by a different vessels, predominantly by branches of the medial and lateral femoral circumflex arteries that encircles the femoral head in the trochanteric area and branch off into retinacular
vessels that pass proximally toward the head in three segments: small anterior, posteroinferior and posterosuperior retinacular
When surgery is indicated, lateral releases should be avoided; lateral retinacular
lengthening is the better option because it preserves the anatomical bridle that keeps the knee cap tracking properly, Dr.
A lateral retinacular
imbrication technique for the surgical correction of anterior cruciate ligament rupture in the dog.
For example granivorous/herbivorous carabids have evolved a large retinacular
ridge on their mandible, which is used to grind seeds (Acorn & Ball 1991).
Lateral ankle instability as a cause of superior peroneal retinacular
laxity: an ana-tomic and biomechanical study of cadaveric feet.
In the case of patellar hypermobility, the patella is usually tilted first because when the patella is moved in a medial direction, the medial border will move anteriorly indicating relatively tight deep lateral retinacular
Furthermore, we should not underestimate the mobilization of the DIP to prevent adhesions of lateral bands, of the oblique retinacular
ligaments and to prevent joint stiffness.
The procedures reported included: knee partial menisectomy, knee ACL reconstruction using hamstring tendon, knee lateral retinacular
release, and shoulder rotator cuff and labral repair.
Anatomical structures with sensory nerve supply include the patellar tendon, retinacular
tissue, bursae, synovial tissue and the fat pads.
A canthoplasty with a periosteal flap or a fascia lata graft to correct lateral retinacular
dehiscence may also be necessary.
