Abstract

Objectives: Patellar instability is one of the most common pathologies in children and adolescents. The objective of this study is to present the functional and diagnostic results after performing modified Roux-Goldthwait procedure for habitual patellar dislocation in pediatric population.
Materials & methods: A retrospective analysis was performed on 17 patients, under the age of 18 years, from September 2007 to March 2023. For diagnostic results were evaluated congruence angle, sulcus angle and Caton-Deschamps index. Functional results were evaluated by modified Lysholm score and Cox grading system.
Results: Excellent and good results were reported for 82%, fair and poor results for 18%. No statistical significance was reported on the topic of congruence angle and sulcus angle.
Conclusions: Modified Roux-Goldthwait procedure for habitual patellar dislocation in pediatric population is safe and effective as it is entirely soft tissue operation that leaves the growth plate intact.
