IC 102-2022: Patellofemoral Instability From Simple to Complex: How to Get it Right
Course Information


Title: Patellofemoral Instability from Simple to Complex: How to Get it Right


Course Description:

This interactive course uses a round table format with one faculty per group of attendees for case-based learning.  A moderator will present the case followed by small group discussion.  Concepts covered include optimizing MPFL reconstruction techniques and learning to recognize the various anatomic risk factors that increase the risk of recurrent patella instability and how to manage them.  These include malalignment, patella alta, rotational deformities and trochlear dysplasia.  When is an MPFL reconstruction not enough, and which anatomic risk factors should be addressed?  What adjustments need to be made for open physes? What should the threshold be to change the anatomy? The international faculty represents very experienced PF surgeons with a lot to share in this area that can be controversial and not always clear cut.          


Learning Objectives:

Attendees will understand techniques to optimize MPFL reconstruction and how to troubleshoot to avoid complications.      

To improve knowledge of radiographic imaging to recognize, quantify, and make decisions about various anatomic risk factors for PF instability.      

To understand techniques used to address these anatomic risk factors as part of correcting PF instability.

To provide a highly interactive, small group learning format that enables engaged learning by the participants with individual faculty.
