In this video, Dr Arendt discusses the diagnostic workup of recurrent lateral patellar instability. She shows different ways to diagnose instability via radiographs and physical examination, noting that when a knee is instable, that doesn't always mean something is wrong with the patella. Her take home messages are; check patella height, use more than one method to measure, reconsider the value in TT-TG measures, rehabilitate faulty body movements, and LPD and dysplasia is a disease of the youth.
