Date of Presentation
This functional anatomy demonstration involved surgical release of the lateral patellar retinaculum in a human cadaver model. There were negligible effects on sagittal and frontal patellar glides but substantially reduced lateral patellar tilt during tibiofemoral joint movements. This information will assist clinicians in rehabilitating patients following lateral retinacular release.
