A standard midline longitudinal incision from superior pole
of patella to tibial tuberosity was given.
The syndrome is caused by growth of interposing soft tissue usually at the superior pole
of the patella.
Intraoperatively, there was tract-like tissue medial and adherent to the superior pole
of the gland.
The incision was made from the superior pole
of the patella to the medial side where the patella tendon inserts into the tibia tubercle.
Three drill holes were made from the inferior pole to the superior pole
of each patella with a 2.
It gave an apical branch as extra hilar artery entering the superior pole
and entered the hilum showing little arched course.
2 braided polyester tape was passed through a drill hole in the tibial tuberosity and through the quadriceps tendon at the superior pole

Normally, most of the newborn have two obliterations at two levels, one at the level of deep ring and one at the superior pole
1) With this technique, early division of anterior tracheal attachments and mobilization of the superior pole
facilitates removal of the inferior pole from the mediastinum.
Each of the elongated lateral lobes consists of inferior and superior pole
