patellar femoral pain syndrome

Ying Xin Candice Leong, Poh Lye Paul See
A 20-year-old National Serviceman presented with left knee pain and swelling after training for his physical fitness test. Lateral knee radiography and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging showed patellar tendon-lateral femoral condyle friction syndrome (PT-LFCFS), on a background of patella alta and patellar malalignment. The patient was treated non-operatively with a course of physiotherapy and given advice on rest and activity modification. PT-LFCFS is a less well-recognised but important cause of anterior knee pain and represents an entity in a spectrum of disorders related to patellofemoral instability...

Anterior knee pain in active young adults is commonly related to patellofemoral pain syndrome, which can be broadly classified into patellar malalignment and patellar maltracking. Imaging is performed to further elucidate the exact malalignment and maltracking abnormalities and exclude other differentials. This article details the role of the stabilizers of the patellofemoral joint, findings on conventional and multimodality imaging aiding in patellofemoral pain syndrome diagnosis and characterization, and current perspectives of various treatment approaches...

BACKGROUND: Anterior knee pain is one of the most common musculoskeletal complaints of young patients. We notice that some patients had normal femoral trochlear, medial and lateral patellar retinaculum, and special patellar morphology, which resulted in a series of symptoms in the flexion of the knee due to the impingement of the lateral articular surface of the patella with the femur. We firstly termed this pathologic process as lateral patellar impingement syndrome (LPIS). This ambispective cohort study was to explore the curative effect of arthroscopic lateral patelloplasty for early LPIS...

Hereditary onycho-osteodysplasia, also known as nail-patella syndrome (NPS), is a rare genetic disorder that is primarily characterized by poorly developed nails and patella. Patients with NPS frequently suffer from patellar instability that requires surgical management. The present case report describes a 25-year-old man with NPS. The patient presented with left knee pain and was found to have recurrent left patellar dislocation. The knee pain was first reported 1-year after a minor knee trauma incident. Following complete evaluation, a diagnosis of NPS was reached...

Shock waves have been widely recognized in literature as a biological regulator; accordingly we carried out a review on the effect of shock waves on the mesenchymal cells in their various expressions: bone, muscle, ligament and tendon tissue. To date, the application of Shock Wave Therapy (SWT) in musculoskeletal disorders has been primarily used in the treatment of tendinopathies (proximal plantar fasciopathy, lateral elbow tendinopathy, calcific tendinopathy of the shoulder, and patellar tendinopathy, etc...

Despite improvements in technique and technology for total knee arthroplasty (TKA), anterior knee pain impacts patient outcomes and satisfaction. Addressing the prosthetic and surgical technique related causes of pain after TKA, specifically as it relates to anterior knee pain, can aid surgeons in addressing these issues with their patients. Design features of the femoral and patellar components which have been reported as pain generators include: Improper femoral as well as patellar component sizing or designs that result in patellofemoral stuffing; a shortened trochlear groove distance from the flange to the intercondylar box; and then surgical technique related issues resulting in: Lateral patellar facet syndrome; overstuffed patella/flange combination; asymmetric patellar resurfacing, improper transverse plane component rotation resulting in patellar subluxation/tilt...

BACKGROUND: Total knee arthroplasty gives excellent objective results. Nevertheless, the subjective findings do not match the normal knee perception: Often, it depends on patellar pain onset. In this study, we analyzed clinical and radiological items that can affect resurfaced patellar tracking, and role of a patella-friendly femoral component and patellar size on patellar pain onset. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty consecutive patients were implanted using the same-cemented posterior-stabilized TKA associated with patella resurfacing...

BACKGROUND: The trochlea is often medialized after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) resulting in abnormal patellar tracking, which may lead to anterior knee pain. However, due to the difference in shape of the natural trochlea and the patellar groove of the femoral component, a medialization of the femoral component of 5 mm results in an equal patellar position at 0-30° of flexion. We tested the hypothesis that more medialization of the trochlea results in a higher VAS pain score and lower Kujala anterior knee pain score at midterm follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Knee pain in cerebral palsy (CP) is associated with increased patellofemoral forces present when walking with flexed knees. In typically developing children, knee pain and patellofemoral dysfunction are associated with obesity, genu valgum, femoral anteversion, and external tibial torsion. These problems are also common in CP, and may contribute to knee problems in this population. The purposes of this study were to define the prevalence of knee pain and patellofemoral dysfunction in children with CP, and to identify physical and gait characteristics (using 3-dimensional gait analysis data) that predispose them to such problems...

Anterior knee pain is one of the most common knee problems in physically active individuals. The reason for anterior knee pain has been suggested to be multifactorial with patella abnormalities or extensor mechanism disorder leading to patellar malalignment during flexion and extension of the knee joint. Some patients complain mostly of non-specific knee pain, while others report patellar instability problems. The patients present with a variety of symptoms and clinical findings, meaning that a thorough clinical examination is the key for optimal treatment...
