  • Comparison of Insall-Salvati Index and Its Modification in Normal Dogs from Four Different Body Weight Groups. [Journal Article]
    Vet Comp Orthop Traumatol 2019Ocal MK, Seyrek-Intas D, Cagatay S
  • CONCLUSIONS: The reference intervals for the IS index were 1.04 to 2.16 in the small dogs, 1.19 to 2.27 in the medium dogs, 1.40 to 2.24 in the large dogs and 1.71 to 2.23 in the giant dogs. The reference intervals for the LLcr:PL index were 1.59 to 2.51 in the small dogs, 1.75 to 2.51 in the medium dogs, 1.81 to 2.65 in the large dogs and 1.95 to 2.59 in the giant dogs. Dogs with values exceeding these reference intervals have patella alta and those with values below these intervals have patella baja.
  • Is Pseudo-Patella Baja Really a Serious Complication of Total Knee Arthroplasty? [Journal Article]
    J Arthroplasty 2019Aguirre-Pastor A, Ortolá DJ, … Lopez-Prats FA
  • CONCLUSIONS: PPB was a relatively common finding, but no significant differences in terms of clinical outcomes were found as compared to patients with postoperative normal patellar height. TPB was infrequent, but these patients had significantly worse clinical outcomes than those with PPB or normal patellar height.
  • Patellofemoral morphology measurements and their associations with tibiofemoral osteoarthritis-related structural damage: exploratory analysis on the osteoarthritis initiative. [Journal Article]
    Eur Radiol 2020; 30(1):128-140Haj-Mirzaian A, Guermazi A, … Demehri S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Higher TT-TG distance was associated with concurrent MRI-derived OA-related structural damages and 2-year follow-up worsening only in LTFC. No associations were detected between patellofemoral morphology measurements and MTFC OA progression.• Of all patellofemoral morphology measurements, the only lateralization of the tibial tubercle may be considered as a risk factor for lateral (not medial) tibiofemoral osteoarthritis worsening. • Patellofemoral morphology measurements of patella alta, trochlear dysplasia, patellar tilt, and lateralization of the tibial tubercle are not associated with radiographic and MRI-based medial tibiofemoral osteoarthritis worsening over 2 years. • Using longitudinal MRI data, each millimeter increase of TT-TG distance is associated with a 9% (95% confidence interval, 3-16%) increase in odds of longitudinal cartilage defects in the lateral tibiofemoral (but not medial) compartment over 2 years.
  • Patellar height measurements: Insall-Salvati ratio is most reliable method. [Journal Article]
    Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc 2019Verhulst FV, van Sambeeck JDP, … Koëter S
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this study, the Insall-Salvati ratio shows better intra- and inter-observer reliability than the Blackburne-Peel ratio, the Caton-Deschamps ratio and the modified Insall-Salvati ratio on all imaging modalities. Radiography and CT seem to have better reliability than MRI. The patellotrochlear index, however, shows good inter- and intra-observer reliability on MRI. Only for the IS method was there acceptable agreement between CR and MRI. This means that the established Insall-Salvati normal values could be used for MRI as well. This study shows that the most reliable method to measure patella height is the Insall-Salvati ratio measured on conventional radiographs or the patellotrochlear index on MRI.
