    Abstract

    A case of inveterate dislocation of the knee treated by the authors is presented. Due to initial circumstances inclusive of polytrauma and life threatening condition of the patient the dislocation was untreated for 8 weeks. Surgical reduction supplemented with capsule ligamentoplasty despite development of multiple periarticular calcifications allowed for regaining sufficient mobility and function of the joint.
