Abstract

The medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) is the primary restraint to lateral dislocation of the patella, and insufficiency of the MPFL is considered to be the pathognomonic lesion in recurrent patella dislocation. Surgical treatment includes primary repair, ligament imbrication, or reconstruction using autologous or synthetic grafts. We describe the successful use of an artificial ligament advancement reinforcement system ligament to reconstruct the MPFL in the setting of recurrent patella dislocation.
