Summary This state-of-the-art book provides a comprehensive overview of the most common patellofemoral joint problems. Utilizing the latest evidence, it guides readers through prevention, diagnosis and treatment for both adult and paediatric patients. After discussing clinical examination and diagnosis, it explores topics such as acute and recurrent dislocation of the patella, cartilage defects of the joint, patellofemoral instability and patellofemoral osteoarthritis. The book also features a chapter on conservative strategies, including physical medicine and rehabilitation. Research is moving quickly in this field, and as such there is a growing need for consensus documents: written by leading experts, this comprehensive book is a valuable resource for orthopaedic surgeons, knee specialists and sports medicine ones, and is also of great interest to physiatrists, physical therapists and all healthcare workers involved in the care of these patients
