Patellofemoral instability is commonly associated with the rupture of the medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL), and the role of the medial patellotibial ligament (MPTL) is slowly emerging. Soft tissue reconstructions are able to restore patellar stability. Methods. We present a surgical technique for the combined reconstruction of the MPFL and MPTL using gracilis or semitendinosus … Continued
