Diagnosis of Medial Patella Luxation (MPL)

The diagnosis of MPL is usually made on orthopedic examination although radiography (X-Rays) may also be helpful. The indications for surgery include presence of clinical signs of MPL, spontaneous luxation and the grade of luxation.

Dogs left with an untreated MPL are prone to develop arthritis and may be predisposed to cranial cruciate tears (also known as ACL tears).
