Luxating Patella in Dogs

Luxating patella is essentially a displacement or dislocation of the patella (also known as the knee cap) from its normal position in the groove at the end of the femur (the trochlea). The patella is at the lower end of the quadriceps group of muscles and is attached to the tibia by means of the patellar tendon. The patella normally moves up and down in this groove but should not move out of the groove to either side. When it does move out of the groove, it is called a luxating patella. Movement out of the groove to the inside of the groove is called a medial luxation and movement out of the groove to the outside is called a lateral luxation. The underside of the patella and the femoral trochlea are each covered with a smooth thin articular cartilage which protects the joint.
