Patella dislocation MPFL
« on: December 06, 2020, 11:19:26 AM »
Hi, About 20 years ago I dislocated my patella laterally and had a Roux-Goldthwait operation, on the x-ray it was noted a small fragment of bone came off the patella (Avulsion fracture). 12 years ago I had a MPFL reconstruction. Recently Iíve experienced some clicking/grating around the reconstructed MPFL, my x rays still shows the Avulsion fracture of bone on the medial side. My question is : is it usual to have this fragment of bone removed when having a MPFL reconstruction?. It hasnít give me an issue until 4 months ago when I noticed the clicking/grating and the feeling of something loose around the MPFL ligament which could be this bone fragment interfering with the reconstructed MPFL?.
