MPFL Reconstruction for Patella Malalignment

 

Patella Femoral Malalignment is a very difficult condition to treat. To date there have been more than 100 different operations described to deal with this problem, however none are bulletproof. Because of this A/Prof Munjed Al Muderis has developed a new technique which involves reconstructing the medial patella femoral ligament using an artificial ligament. This technique demonstrates very promising results, good patient recovery and no single recurrence or dislocation so far. 

In this video A/Prof Munjed Al Muderis takes you through the steps involved in this very effective operation.
