When you take the ITB off, from Gerdy's tubericle, you only have enough length to make only one pass.

When you take it based from Gerdy's tubericle, you can get enought ITB to make as many passes as necessary to cover the defect, and double or triple the thickness by going back and fourth between the insertional area on the femur and the tibia.  This is considerably stronger.  I only use this method.

Can't you just use the leftover tissue and then repair the ligament?
is it really necessary to borrow other fabrics?
and then if you suffer from ITB syndrome, is it possible that cutting a piece makes this worse?

Lateral release should not have been done under any circumstance as a stand-alone surgery and it is one of the most debilitating knee surgery. You will be in severe pain.  You will lose your ability to run, or even walk normally. Your quad muscle will atrophy.

The only solution if LPFL reconstruction done by Dr. Robert LaPrade.
