ICL Description
Patella instability can be the result of severe anatomic variants, making a medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction alone at risk to fail. The faculty for this ICL present a strategy to evaluate anatomic risk factors associated with patella instability and tackle the decisions for when to perform an osteotomy as part of the solution. An overview of complex and revision MPFL, trochleoplasty, indications for tibial tubercle osteotomy (TTO)/distalization, articular cartilage/arthritis and when patellofemoral arthroplasty is the best approach is provided. The faculty also go through surgical techniques and offer tips and tricks for success.
Learning Objectives
At the completion of the instructional course, the participants should be able to:
  1. Measure and quantify various anatomic risk factors associated with patella instability.
  2. Use this information to make decisions regarding indications for various osteotomies to correct the risk factors.
  3. Have an understanding of the technical aspects related to various osteotomies such as TTO, distal femoral osteotomy, rotational osteotomy and trochleoplasty.
