Although a tilted patella is usually associated with increased lateral pressures, diminished medial patellofemoral contact, and a tight retinaculum, none of these may occur in the presence of certain patellofemoral morphologies.
Located along the shaft of the drill, the actuators apply lateral pressure against the side of the borehole to alter the orientation of the drill head.
