Multiligamentous Knee Injury/Knee Dislocation
When the knee completely dislocates, a multiligamentous knee injury is usually the result. However, a dislocation does not need to occur to result in the tearing of multiple knee ligaments. These injuries are more serious than isolated single ligament tear, and usually require surgical repair/reconstruction to allow for knee stability.
PRIMARY REPAIR AND EARLY REHABILITATION IS EFFECTIVE OPTION FOR KNEE DISLOCATION
This retrospective study of consecutive knee dislocations reported good results with early repair of all injured structures coupled with early rehabilitation. Continued instability was not the prevailing problem for this cohort – but stiffness was common.
