Abstract

When a female patient's Q-angle in 30 degrees flexion knee changes obviously compared with Q-angle in extension position, recurrent patellar dislocation should be considered. For female patients with recurrent patellar dislocation, the preoperative Q-angle in 30 degrees flexion with manual correction should be measured, which can help increasing the accuracy of evaluation whether rearrangement should be performed.
