On the subject of Patellofemoral Joint Replacement (PFJ) Dr Jimmy Chow (US) outlines when the procedure is relevant, including considerations of trochlear displacement, biomechanics and meniscal integrity. Dr Chow discusses what he uses for PFJ, including historical outcomes, to achieve an ideal reconstruction for stability and rotation that is not limited to resurfacing. He concludes with the role of robotics for visualising and mapping to optimise the trochlear groove, with on-screen examples.
