Abstract

The exact areas of contact of the patella with the femur during the full range of movement was studied in anatomical preparations and operation specimens. The contact areas especially the ridge between the 2 medial facets of the patella were found to be the seat of chondromalacia in 23 of 27 patients with this condition. It was found that this area bears a heavy load during movement from 90° to full flexion of the knee joint.
