Both allograft, autograft for MPFL reconstruction yielded low rates of repeat dislocation

Both allograft, autograft for MPFL reconstruction yielded low rates of repeat dislocation
May 22, 2017

DENVER — Patients who underwent medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction with either allograft or autograft had low risks of repeat dislocation and had similar rates of recurrent subjective instability, according to results presented here.

“Redislocation after isolated [medial patellofemoral ligament] MPFL reconstruction with allograft or autograft tissue is rare and not significantly different between the graft types,” Scott Shemory, MD, said in his presentation, which was awarded the Patellofemoral Surgical Anatomy Research Excellence Award at the Arthroscopic Association of North America Annual Meeting. “Recurrent subjective instability occurs more frequently for reconstructions done both with allograft and autograft and is also not significantly different between the graft types.”
