Abstract
Patellofemoral instability is initially treated conservatively and surgical treatment is reserved for resistant cases. Reconstruction of medial patellofemoral ligament has gained popularity these days as it attempts at restoring soft tissue anatomy and biomechanics of medial patellar restraint back to normal. Here we describe our novel transverse patella single tunnel and femoral interference screw technique to reconstruct the medial patel- lofemoral ligament using free autologous gracilis and semitendinosus grafts.
