    Abstract:
    Patellofemoral instability is one of the most prevalent knee disorders in adolescents. It is often multifactorial and complex. Often accompanied by insufficiency or tear of MPFL ligament. MPFL is primary soft tissue stabiliser of patella and acts as checkrein of lateral patella dislocation. There have been variations in surgical techniques including different choices of surgical techniques, graft material and fixation methods, despite these there is no conclusive evidence that a particular surgical option is superior to another. Recurrent Patella instability requires individualised surgical planning . In this article we present a surgical technique which is implantless socket type of press-fit fixation at patella .
