Interestingly, when the 5 studies using TKA implants with better patellofemoral kinematics (“patellar friendly”designs) were isolated, non-resurfacing lead to better.   Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS), also known as runner’s knee, is the most common of all kinds of knee pain, causing pain around and under the anyone can get it, but it particularly affects runners, cyclists and hikers, and also office workers or anyone else who sits for a living.

The patella engages the trochlear groove in 20° flexion, as the knee continues to flex the entire patella engages and the patella translates lateral and tilts a is at greatest risk of dislocating in 30° flex (as it begins to engage), and with further flexion, bony constraint (anterior flange of LFC) prevents lateral instability.. The forces on Patellar tracking are represented.   Chondromalacia patellae is damage to the cartilage at the back of the kneecap (patella).
