Lateral Patellar Tilt

The role of patellofemoral malalignment in anterior knee pain has been shown by many investigators. Detection of lateral displacement was the sole purpose of earlier studies until Laurin et al. introduced the concept of patellar tilt as a form of malalignment. This tilt could be observed even with the patella completely reduced in the femoral groove, and was therefore independent of the mediolateral position of the patella.
