Tibial tubercle transfer or replacement
This question arises when the orthopedic surgeon in India is confronted with an elderly patient with pre dominantly patellar pain but X rays show some mild changes in the medial compartment. In such a situation an arthroscopy will confirm the extent of the disease whether it is localised to the patello femoral joint or it also involves the medial and lateral compartments. If the disease is restricted to the patella with mal tracking then tibial tubercle transfer is the operation of choice.
Tbial tubercle transfer or Patello femoral replacment
I face this dilemma when there are definite signs of disease but x rays and MR scans show no malalignment. If the lesion is situated in the top of the patella then tibial tubercle transfer will not help and a replacement will be the ideal operation.
