Abstract

We retrospectively studied the outcome of 16 knee dislocations. 11 patients had surgical treatment, 4 were managed nonoperatively and 1 patient died. In the elderly the outcome was poor, regardless of the type of treatment. Only 3 adolescents obtained excellent results and 2 young adults had good results after surgical repair of the knee. Concurrent arterial and nerve damage increased the morbidity.
