Trans-patella tendon approach for domed lateral unicompartmental knee arthroplasty does not increase the risk of patella tendon shortening

Abstract:

Purpose: Shortening of the patella tendon has been noted after total knee arthroplasty and has been associated with diminished functional outcomes. Traumatic and/or ischaemic injury peri-operatively are suggested causes. The Oxford domed lateral unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) requires a vertical incision through the patella tendon to facilitate orientation of the proximal tibial saw cut; this may induce scarring or impair vascularity of the tendon and can cause shortening.
