Open Reduction of Neglected Knee Dislocation: Case Report of a Rare Injury


Old neglected dislocation of knee joint is a rare injury. Any orthopaedic surgeon would have faced only a few cases of unreduced neglected dislocation in his life time practice. We report the case of a 30-year old male patient with one month old unreduced knee dislocation which was managed with open reduction and stabilization with two intra-articular crossed Steinman pins for six weeks, followed by removal of the pins and gradual weight bearing in hinged knee brace. At the end of one year, range of movement of knee joint was 0 to 50 degree with minimal knee pain on walking.
