Table 1 Characteristics of investigated conditions in the FE model

From: Lateral release associated with MPFL reconstruction in patients with acute patellar dislocation

Conditions TT-TG (mm) MPFL Lateral Retinaculum
Healthy 12 MPFL stiffness/Intact Native stiffness/Intact
Patellar Instability 12 Deactivated/Transected Native stiffness/Intact
MPFL Reconstruction 12 Semitendinosus stiffness/Reconstructed Native stiffness/Intact
MPFL Reconstruction + Lateral Resection 12 Semitendinosus stiffness/Reconstructed Deactivated/Transected
