Transient Lateral Patellar Dislocation

output_K5tzd6

Good example of classic findings:

  • Patellar and lateral condylar contusions.
  • Complete medial retinacular tear visible at the patella.  They are not often this discrete.
  • Patellar chondral defect associated with the impaction.
  • Vastus medialis strain.
  • The only thing really missing is a big floating osteochondral patellar fragment.
