Abstract

Surgical treatment of patella instability has two approaches. One is that anatomic alignment is the most important factor(s) and all elements of malalignment must be corrected. The other viewpoint is a softer approach that recognizes the importance of a soft tissue restraint to lateral patella translation: to stabilize or recreate this restraint can be sufficient in many cases with bony (mal)alignment left uncorrected.
