The article offers information on patellofemoral arthroplasty and its indications and contraindications. Successful patellofemoral arthroplasty depends on the intersection of several critical variables, with patient selection, prosthetic design, and surgical technique. It is also informed that surgeons should have a more critical view while considering patellofemoral arthritis or advanced, and symptomatic patellofemoral chondromalacia.
