Abstract: Total knee arthroplasties (TKAs) may or may not be associated to patellar resurfacing. When resurfacing is not an option, some additional procedures may be associated. We compared native patellar retaining (NPR) to patellar reshaping (PR), the latter including bony debulking by a "roof-like" osteotomy, circumferential cauterization, lateral release, lateral edge osteotomy and osteophytes removal. PR showed better functional and subjective results. We strongly suggest PR when patellar resurfacing during TKA is not suitable.
