The article focuses on current conceptualization concerning peroprosthetic patellar fractures. Peroprosthetic patellar fractures is said to be the most common fractures complicating total knee arthroplasty. Its clinical and radiographic examinations should be focused on determining the integrity of the extensor mechanism and the fixation of the patellar component. Also, its etiology is multifactorial and maybe classified on the basis of intraoperative or postoperative factors.

    It is often suggested that patella tracking after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) with an asymmetrical patella groove is more physiological than with a symmetrical patella groove. Therefore, this study tried to address two questions: what is the effect of TKA on patella tracking, and is patella...

    Introduction: Patellofemoral related complications after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) remain clinically relevant. The hypothesis of the present study was that the patellar height changes more than 10 % of its preoperative height after TKA. Possible influences of age, gender, side and navigation...

    The medial parapatellar approach has become the standard technique in total knee arthroplasty (TKA). However, recent studies have reported superior results regarding functional recovery when using the midvastus approach. It was the aim of this study to evaluate the early functional outcome of...

    An original tensor system was developed to directly measure the load between femoral trial component and tibial cut surface in vivo in both patella everted and reset positions during total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We used this system during posterior-stabilized (PS) and cruciate-retaining (CR)...

    Several controversies exist regarding the surgical difficulties and the results of total knee arthroplasty performed after failed valgus high tibial osteotomy (HTO), and the main subject is the change in patellar height that results as patella baja or infera.

    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...

    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...
