Case Study
The article presents three case reports related to orthopedics. It notes that various medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) repair and reconstruction techniques are available including tunnel placements, bone fixation and graft options. A rapid dissolution of the articular cartilage surfaces of the glenoid and the humeral head is one of the indications of glenohumeral chondrolysis. Meanwhile, langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a benign bone neoplasm usually manifested during childhood.
