The aim of the study is to evaluate the overall outcome, both subjective and objective, of Medial Patellofemoral Ligament (MPFL) reconstruction in cases of recurrent patellar dislocations.
Zhou et al., "Double-bundle anatomical versus single-bundle isometric medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction for patellar dislocation," International Orthopaedics, vol.
Medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction provides good results in terms of preventing future dislocations [9, 11, 12, 22-30].

The medial patellofemoral ligament is a distinct condensation of fibers located superficially to the joint capsule (LaPrade et al., 2007).
Since it replicates the medial patellofemoral ligament's native shape, MPFL reconstruction generally provides the best possible stability in both knee flexion and extension.
Reconstruction of the medial patellofemoral ligament has been a well-documented method of restoring the proximal soft tissue alignment of the patellofemoral joint in cases of recurrent instability.
(5.) Amis AA, Firer P Mountney J, Senavongse W, Thomas NP Anatomy and biomechanics of the medial patellofemoral ligament: review.
Isolated patellofemoral arthritis can be attributed to abnormal patellofemoral mechanics in the absence of trauma, which can be caused by any combination of patella alta, trochlear dysplasia, increased Q angle, weak or hypoplastic vastus medialis oblique, a contracted lateral retinaculum, and absent or redundant medial patellofemoral ligament. These factors eventually result in secondary degenerative changes to articular surfaces.
There are currently several surgical options to correct the abnormal anatomy of patellar dislocation: proximal realignment (such as lateral retinaculum release) [9, 10], vastus medialis advancement [9,10], medial transfer of the tibial tuberosity [9, 10], medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction [11], trochleoplasty [1], and combinations of these surgical techniques.
