Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy, 05/07/2012

Patellofemoral arthroplasty using the Journey┬« PFJ for treatment of significant patellofemoral OA demonstrated improved clinical scores at the 2–year follow–up in both groups. Comparing the primary OA (I) and OA + instability (II) groups, patients with patellofemoral OA treated with a combined procedure for concomitant stabilization of patellofemoral instability may benefit more from such a combined procedure, than patients treated with an isolated procedure for treatment of isolated patellofemoral OA.
