    Dr Elizabeth Arendt (US) discusses the injury and surgical correlations in patellofemoral anatomy, including the four principle instability factors. With on-screen evidence, Dr Arendt demonstrates different anatomical considerations and approaches according to ‘functional engagement’, with ‘J-sign’ comparisons and factors influencing the best surgical results. In conclusion, Dr Arendt highlights soft tissue anatomy considerations and demonstrates why the medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) is viewed as the essential stabiliser against lateral patella displacement
