MPFL reconstruction is a viable option for treating patients with recurrent patellar instability, in whom nonoperative methods have failed to provide relief. It is important to evaluate patients for predisposing factors for patellar instability. This technique of MPFL reconstruction uses a reliable method to obtain anatomic tunnel position. Rigid fixation with interference fit in bone tunnels allows early range of motion and rehabilitation and minimizes concern for graft failure.
