Abstract

Fourteen patients with acute or chronic patellar instability had treatment with a new reconstructive procedure. It consists of isokinetic augmentation of the medial patellofemoral ligament (PFL) by making a tenodesis of the distal adductor magnus tendon to the medial border of patella. The patients were reviewed at a mean of 6.9 ± 0.5 years after operation. In 12 patients, the subjective result was good. One patient had redislocation.
