This title focuses on: sports medicine and hip, knee & lower extremity. Drs. Dobbs, Greis, and Burks outline the background, indications, and contraindications for medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction as a treatment for recurrent patellofemoral instability. They show the anatomy of the medial patellofemoral ligament on a cadaveric specimen and carefully demonstrate their current technique of medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction using a gracilis tendon graft in one case example along with cadaveric and alternate case examples. They also point out the arthroscopic and gross anatomy before and after reconstruction and discuss the post-operative rehabilitation and the potential complications of the procedure.
