Abstract Five dogs of varying breeds and ages were presented for evaluation of medial patellar luxation that was unresponsive to conservative treatment. Arthroscopy of each affected stifle was performed, and adequacy of the femoral trochlea and patellar tracking in the trochlea were assessed. Medial femoropatellar ligament release was then performed using a bipolar radiofrequency electrosurgical system with or without a tibial tuberosity transposition. The procedure resulted in good to excellent outcomes for four dogs and a fair outcome for a fifth dog.
