Among them, osteotomy combined with proximal soft tissue realignment procedures including lateral release and medial reefing has been commonly performed.

Similar findings were reported by other authors showing contractures of quadriceps mechanism in cases of habbitual dislocation of patella. Patellar maltracking was persistent and so, it was decided to disloxation with medial and distal transfer of tibial tuberosity. In adults, if genu valgum deformity remains after realignment due to the unstable patella, symptoms may also persist. Reconstruction of the medial patellofemoral ligament for the treatment of habitual or recurrent dislocation of the patella in children.

An anatomic radiographic study. We here report a case of habitual dislocation of the patella with genu valgum treated with a corrective osteotomy of the distal femur combined with patellw release and medial reefing.

Discussion The causes of habitual patellar dislocation include contracture and fibrosis of the quadriceps femoris, vastus lateralis, and lateral retinaculum, abnormal iliotibial band attachment, repeated intramuscular injections into the thigh, patella alta due to the abnormal position of an elongated patellar tendon, systemic ligament laxity, dysplastic lateral femoral condyle, and genu valgum 2 – 4.

In habitual dislocation, where flexion of the knee was always associated with displacement of the patella, both lateral contractures and medial laxity were present. Published online Sep But dislocatiom vigorous quadriceps exercises, patient improved without any extensor lag.

The major intra-operative finding was contracture of the lateral patellar retinaculum with fibrotic bands in the superolateral aspect of patella. Habitual dislocation of patella is a condition where the patella dislocates whenever the knee is flexed and spontaneously relocates with extension of the knee.

Initially patient had extensor lag of 15 degrees as she was immobilized in flexion. Therefore, there was no indication for recentering the patella or lowering the tibial tubercle by osteotomy.
