"We recommend patellar
tendon reconstruction for higher-risk, younger patients."
tendon tissue was obtained from 10 males with healthy patellar
tendons (CON) and 10 males with patellar
We hypothesized that the fixation of osteochondral fracture in adolescent patients with patellar
dislocation was not necessary when the fracture did not involve the bearing surface of the knee.
(36),(37) then started using an optic fiber force transducer that was passed through the patellar
tendon with a hollow needle to measure tendon tension during different jump tasks, such as hopping and squat jumps.
Indoor and outdoor patients presenting with history of or clinical features of patellar
translation was defined as the distance between the most medial point of the patella and a line drawn at the most medial point of the femoral trochlea.
Complications associated with corrective surgery for patellar
luxation in 109 dogs.
An abnormally shallow trochlear sulcus has been reported to be an important factor in patellar
instability [16, 17].
Finally, a narrow and thin common tendon of the three muscles inserts onto the proximal end of the patella, and this thin tendon continues to the patellar
Although various landmark guidelines, such as the medial-lateral (side-to-side) extents, have been suggested for performing the patellar
cut, the ultimate goal is to be parallel to the anterior surface, producing a visually rectangular cut, with equal thicknesses in all quadrants .
The high energy nature of the athletic injury is associated with compartment syndrome from bleeding into the anterior compartment, vascular injury , patellar
tendon avulsion , and meniscal injury--exhibited only with fracture types that extend intra-articularly .
Instead, the whole extensor apparatus was resected in its entire length including distal part of quadriceps tendon, patella, and patellar
ligament through a midline anterior approach (Figure 2).
