Abstract

Although the geometry of the trochlear groove is considered important in the pathogenesis of patellofemoral joint pathology it is unclear how the shape of the trochlear groove relates to patella morphology. This cross-sectional study investigated the relationship between the shape of the trochlear groove and patella cartilage and bone morphology in healthy adults.
