As our understanding of medial patellofemoral anatomy continues to grow, the implications for surgical reconstruction have evolved. Whereas earlier reports focused on reconstruction of the medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) as the primary treatment for lateral patellar instability, more recent anatomical descriptions have noted additional fibres that extend proximal to the patella, leading to the development of new reconstruction techniques.
