© 2020 Arthroscopy Association of North America Recurrent lateral patellar dislocation can be a challenging entity to manage. It results from an imbalance between the restraints to lateralization of the patella and the forces applied to the patella within the biomechanical environment of the knee. The medial patellofemoral ligament has been recognized as the most important static soft-tissue restraint. However, the medial patellotibial ligament and medial patellomeniscal ligament are important for patellar stability at higher degrees of knee flexion. Lateral patellar dislocation in flexion poses a particularly challenging clinical entity with a combination of unique characteristics that need to be addressed to achieve optimal patellar tracking and stability. In this technical note, we describe a combined medial patellofemoral ligament and medial patellotibial ligament reconstruction technique to address lateral patellar dislocation in flexion.
