Patrick A. Smith, MD, (Columbia, MO) discusses Medial
Patellofemoral Ligament (MPFL) reconstruction as well as his demonstration of the
surgical technique. The MPFL is the main passive restraint against patellofemoral
instability and lateral patellar displacement.
Since the rupture of the MPFL causes patellar dislocation, an anatomic
reconstruction of the MPFL is used to restore patellofemoral stability.
Specifically, an Arthrex® Anatomic Double Bundle MPFL reconstruction replicates
the native shape of the MPFL for patellofemoral stability. Dr. Smith concludes
with sharing his keys to success of the MPFL reconstruction technique.
