Concomitant ipsilateral traumatic dislocation of the hip and knee following high-energy trauma: a case report (Journal article)

Motsis, E. K./ Pakos, E. E./ Zaharis, K./ Korompilias, A. V./ Xenakis, T. A.


Traumatic dislocation of the hip or knee can occur after high-energy trauma and is often associated with concomitant injuries and secondary complications. Concomitant traumatic dislocation of both hip and knee is rare. We describe a case of combined ipsilateral posterior hip dislocation with a posterior acetabular fracture and a complete open knee dislocation with disruption of the popliteal artery that resulted in amputation.
