Abstract: Although controversy still remains, isolated patellofemoral arthroplasty recently gained in popularity as a treatment option for patellofemoral osteoarthritis. It has compared to total knee arthroplasty the advantage of preserving the tibiofemoral articulation, which in theory would allow the preservation of natural tibiofemoral kinematics. Today, however, no data exist to support this assumption. This study was therefore performed in order to investigate the effect of isolated patellofemoral arthroplasty on the native three-dimensional tibiofemoral kinematic behaviour and whether a change in patellar thickness would have an influence.
