From: First-time patellar dislocation with resultant habitual dislocation two years later, which was not demonstrated on plain X-rays halfway: a case report

Figure 5

Images taken during surgery and at 2 years follow-up. The reconstructed ligament is fixed just distal to the epiphyseal line as well as the adductor tubercle, and just distal to the posterior aspect of the medial epicondyle (Fig. 5-A, B). Two years after the surgery, the ROM is full (Fig. 5-C), and the plain X-ray demonstrates that the patella is consistently in position at 30°, 60°, and 90° in flexion (Fig. 5-D, E, F).
