The article focuses on a study which describes the influence of three different patellofemoral implant design on stresses associated with polymer abrasion and delamination. It suggests their efficacy in clinical use. The kinematic model of a total knee replacement indicates that patellofemoral contact at 15° of knee flexion occurs slightly inferior to the midline of the patellar component. There is a resurgence of interest in patellofemoral arthroplasty for isolated compartmental arthritis.

    Background: Patellofemoral arthroplasty is an effective treatment for isolated arthritis of the anterior compartment of the knee, but it is unclear whether it compromises the results of total knee arthroplasty if revision is necessary. The purpose of this study was to review the results of total...

    Background: The effect of so-called stuffing of the patellofemoral compartment at the time of total knee arthroplasty (that is, increasing the anterior patellar displacement, the anteroposterior femoral size, or the combined anteropostenor patellofemoral size) has not been well studied. The...

    Background: Kneeling following total knee arthroplasty can be a difficult task, impairing the activities of patients to varying degrees. Little is known about the biomechanical effects of kneeling following total knee replacement. The objective of this study was to quantify the effects of...

    The most common complications of total knee arthroplasty involve the patellofemoral joint. However, the long-term fate of the nonresurfaced patella after total knee arthroplasty has seldom been reported. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term changes of the nonresurfaced patella...
