Arthroscopic Treatment of Delayed Patella Infera

By ?????????

Abstract

Patella infera (baja) is a rare condition that can result from several etiologies including trauma around the knee. Risk factors include scar tissue formation in the retropatella fat pad, extensor mechanism dysfunction, immobilization in extension position of the knee joint, etc. Unawareness and delayed recognition are known to be associated with long-term disability. In this condition, arthroscopic treatment is generally recommended only for early cases. In this report, we present a case with reasonable outcome of delayed patella infera treated by arthroscopic treatment. Prudent arthroscopic debridement of the responsible scar tissue and accelerated rehabilitation therapy is necessary for achievement of a successful outcome
