Medial Patellofemoral Ligament Repair for Recurrent or Traumatic Patellar Dislocation
Medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) injury occurred when the patella dislocated laterally during sport activity and trauma. In the cadaver study, MPFL weighted 60 % to protect lateral force , and the MPFL is injured in more than 90 % of patellar dislocation . Thus, MPFL function is one of most important factors in patellar stability.
