Locked patellar dislocation:
a case report
Acute patellar dislocation is a
relatively common problem. The most common dislocation is laterally in the
coronal plane. Sometimes spontaneous reduction occurs, but if not, closed
reduction can easily be done. In this paper, we report a very uncommon type of
locked dislocation which required an open reduction.
A 16-year-old girl of Hispanic
origin sustained a sudden dislocation of the patella while she was dancing.
Pre-operative computed tomography revealed a patellar dislocation with rotation
around the vertical axis with the patella wedged on the side of the lateral
condyle. Closed reduction failed. Open reduction was needed and the torn
structures were repaired. At 1-year follow-up, she had a good functional outcome
and reported no recurrence of dislocation.
This case report shows that some
patellar dislocations may be irreducible with the closed technique. Computed
tomography is valuable in case of doubt. If an open reduction is needed, the
medial ligamentous structures should be repaired.
