Kneecap Stabilisation Surgery

Kneecap stabilisation surgical procedure also referred to as patella realignment is a surgical treatment to stabilise and realign the patella following subluxation, dislocation and subsequent misalignment of the knee cap during actions. Physiotherapy plays a important role in rehabilitation and healing following patella stabilisation surgical treatment. The patella (kneecap) is a small, floating, sesamoid bone located at the the front of the knee. The patella is considered one of three bones along side the thigh bone (femur) and shin bone (tibia) that make up the knee joint. The patella is embedded in the quadriceps tendon at the front of the knee and features as a pulley for the quadriceps to assist create extra strength at some point of movements of the knee. Patella stabilisation is a surgical operation used in the remedy of conditions such as patella subluxation and patella dislocation. To increase the visibility and ease of use of open access scientific and scholarly journals top online publishing journals are indexed in different indexing and archiving services. Indexing provides easy access of the article online. The top online publishing journals publish articles which are cited as references by many authors in their work. Citations are important for a journal to get impact factor. Impact factor is a measure reflecting the average number of citations to recent articles published in the journal. The impact of the journal is influenced by impact factor, the journals with high impact factor are considered more important than those with lower ones. Indexing provides easy access of the article online. The international journals are among the best open access journals in the world, set out to publish the most comprehensive, relevant and reliable information based on the current research and development on a variety of subjects. This information can be published in our peer reviewed journal with impact factors and are calculated using citations not only from research articles but also review articles (which tend to receive more citations), editorials, letters, meeting abstracts, short communications, and case reports. The inclusion of these publications provides the opportunity for editors and publishers to manipulate the ratio used to calculate the impact factor and try to increase their number rapidly. Impact factor plays a major role for the particular journal
