SICOT 06/2014 – Medial patellofemoral ligament anatomy: is it a predisposingfactor for lateral patellar dislocation?

Purpose: Because the medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) is the primary restraint to lateral dislocation of the patella, we aimed, in this controlled study, to verify whether the MPFL with different measurements could be considered another predisposing factor for patellar dislocation.
