Patellofemoral instability (PFI) is the movement of the kneecap from its normal position of alignment. It may be caused by sudden injury or developmental wear and tear and will often lead to arthritis.
This book is a concise guide to misalignment of the kneecap, its complications and management.
Beginning with an introduction to the epidemiology of patellar dislocation, anterior knee pain and patho-anatomy, the next chapter examines imaging techniques including X-Rays, CT, MRI and bone scan. The following sections provide in depth coverage of both conservative and surgical management procedures.
The manual is enhanced by clinical photographs and high quality diagrams to assist understanding.
