PurposeTorsional osteotomy of the distal femur allows anatomic treatment of patellofemoral instability and patellofemoral pain syndrome in cases of increased femoral antetorsion. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of distal femoral torsional osteotomy on pressure distribution of the medial and lateral patellar facet.MethodsNine fresh frozen human knee specimens were embedded ...
