Two patients with Kabuki make-up syndrome with bilateral recurrent dislocation of the patella are presented. They had generalized ligamentous laxity and patellofemoral dysplasia. Both developed patellar dislocation in adolescence and required surgery, with medial transfer of the tibial tuberosity associated with vastus medialis plasty (Insall technique). One postoperative complication occurred in one case: a nondisplaced tibia fracture at the sixth postoperative week that healed with conservative means. Final results were good in both cases. Good surgical results can be achieved in patellar dislocation in patients with Kabuki syndrome.

Well I have read that before

Well I have read that before but good that was informative. I believe that  chronic knee pain conditions are caused by a variety of different reasons. Sometimes changing your diet can help you reduce some of the pain you experience.Doctors have endoresed a book about patellar tendonitis acoordding to which stretching exercises are great for muscles and tendons that are around the knee joint. These exercises are highly recommended for chronic pain. However, make sure you seek professional help to perform the exercises correctly.
