Acute patellar dislocation affects approximately 1:1000 healthy children 9-15 years of age, and up to 50% are at risk for recurrent dislocations. In adults the condition is associated with long-term complications, such as osteoarthritis and impairment of knee function. However, literature describing the outcome in a pediatric population is sparse. The present review article evaluates the long-term effects on knee function and cartilage quality after traumatic patellar dislocation in childhood, and also to evaluate the reliability of two clinical tests of medio-lateral knee position, in healthy children.


KEY WORDS: Patellar dislocation; Pediatrics; Knee
