BACKGROUND: Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is associated with early onset knee osteoarthritis. Running is a typical activity following this surgery, but elevated knee joint contact forces are thought to contribute to osteoarthritis degenerative processes. It is therefore clinically relevant to identify interventions to reduce contact forces during running among individuals after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. The primary purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of reducing step length during running on patellofemoral and tibiofemoral joint contact forces among people with a history of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction...

An important consideration for the successful use of fresh osteochondral allografts for the patellofemoral joint is selection of appropriately sized donor allografts. This is particularly challenging for matching grafts to the patella because of the substantial variability in articular contour that exists. At present, selection of donor patellae is based only on the width of the proximal tibia, with no established means of quantifying basic patellar size, facet configuration, or articular contour. We hypothesized that using a combination of standard radiographic measurements to generate an accurate profile of the recipients native patella would result in a more accurate donor graft...

BACKGROUND: The anterior part of the distal femur in trochlear dysplasia has been well investigated; however, to date, posterior morphological characteristics have not been well studied. This study aimed to evaluate whether the posterior femoral condyle in patients with trochlear dysplasia differs from those without trochlear dysplasia. METHODS: Computed tomography scans of 75 knees with trochlear dysplasia and 55 knees with normal anatomy of the patellofemoral joint were analyzed retrospectively...

BACKGROUND: Deficits in plantarflexor function are common after an Achilles tendon rupture. These deficits may result in an altered distribution of joint loads during lower extremity tasks. HYPOTHESIS: We hypothesized that, regardless of treatment, the Achilles tendon-ruptured limb would exhibit deficits in ankle kinematics and joint power while exhibiting elevated knee joint power and patellofemoral joint loads during walking, jogging, and hopping. We further hypothesized that this loading pattern would be most evident during jogging and hopping...

BACKGROUND: In total knee arthroplasty (TKA), femoral component rotation is an important factor in the flexion stability and biomechanics of the patellofemoral joint. However, it remains unclear how much tension is appropriate when performing TKA using the gap technique. METHODS: One hundred fifty TKAs that used the gap technique were randomized into one of the three groups. Gravity group (n=50) included patients who underwent TKA using only the weight of the patient's lower leg...

BACKGROUND: A feature of patellofemoral pain is joint crepitus. Several causes of crepitus have been described, but previous research has focused on the pathological meaning of crepitus. No research has demonstrated a definitive link between noise and pathology and its importance and meaning to patients is unresearched. OBJECTIVE: To explore the beliefs of patients with non-osteoarthritic patellofemoral pain regarding their crepitus, and how this impacts on their behaviour...

Patellofemoral pain (PFP) is a common knee disorder in orthopedic clinics. In the last decade, several investigations have considered the role of proximal factors in addition to local and distal factors in development of PFP. There is a hypothesis which suggests that impaired neuromuscular control and altered hip joint kinematic affect tibiofemoral and patellofemoral biomechanics. Hence, PFP may develop as a result. This article reviews studies assessing the relationship between altered hip mechanics and PFP...

Musculoskeletal models typically use generic 2D models for the tibiofemoral (TFJ) and patellofemoral (PFJ) joints, with a hinge talocrural joint (TCJ), which are scaled to each subject׳s bone dimensions. Alternatively joints' measured kinematics in cadavers are well-predicted using 3D cadaver-specific models. These employ mechanisms constrained by the articulations of geometric objects fitted to the joint׳s surfaces. In this study, we developed TFJ, PFJ and TCJ mechanism-based models off MRIs for fourteen participants and compared the estimated kinematics with those from published studies modified to be consistent with mechanisms models and subject-specific anatomical landmarks...

Bilateral decline squatting has been well documented as a rehabilitation exercise, however, little information exists on the optimum angle of decline. The aim of this study was to determine the ankle and knee angle, moments, the patellofemoral joint load, patellar tendon load and associated muscle activity while performing a double limb squat at different decline angles and the implications to rehabilitation. Eighteen healthy subjects performed double limb squats at 6 angles of declination: 0, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 degrees...

REVIEW

Patellar instability most frequently presents during adolescence. Congenital and infantile dislocation of the patella is a distinct entity from adolescent instability and measurable abnormalities may be present at birth. In the normal patellofemoral joint an increase in quadriceps angle and patellar height are matched by an increase in trochlear depth as the joint matures. Adolescent instability may herald a lifelong condition leading to chronic disability and arthritis. Restoring normal anatomy by trochleoplasty, tibial tubercle transfer or medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction in the young adult prevents further instability...

BACKGROUND: Tibial tubercle transfer (TTT) and medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction have both shown, either in isolation or in combination, to provide improved patellofemoral joint (PFJ) stability. There are few studies that provide evidence that this remains true in the long term. PURPOSE: To compare the long-term results of patellar instability after TTT with and without MPFL reconstruction in 2 randomized groups. STUDY DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial; Level of evidence, 1...

Very little is known about patellofemoral pain syndrome (PPFS) among young dancers. Understanding the mechanism of the injury and implementing a preventative programme are important in order to minimize the risk of PFPS. The aim of the current study is to determine the extent to which factors such as lower extremity and back characteristics are common among dancers with PFPS. The study population included 271 dancers with PFPS and 271 non-injured dancers, aged 10-16 years. All dancers were screened for morphometric profile, dance discipline (h/week), anatomical anomalies (present/absent of scoliosis, genu valgus/varum, etc...

BACKGROUND: The indications for unicompartmental knee arthroplasty remain controversial. Previously recommended contraindications include the following: age under 60 years, weight 180 lb (82 kg) or over, patients undertaking heavy labor, chondrocalcinosis, and exposed bone in the patellofemoral joint. This study explores whether these contraindications are valid in mobile-bearing unicompartmental knee arthroplasty. METHODS: Using a prospective series of 1000 consecutive medial unicompartmental knee arthroplasties in which the reported contraindications were not applied, the functional outcome and survival in patients with or without contraindications were compared...
