Abstract

We report here a unique case of a 3. year neglected rotatory tibiofemoral dislocation associated with a lateral patellar dislocation. The rotational deformity was gradually corrected using a Taylor spatial frame and the patella was realigned by tibial tubercle osteotomy and transfer. The patient also underwent multiple soft tissue releases and quadricepsplasty to improve knee flexion. At nine year follow-up, the patient has good knee range of motion, a congruent knee joint and a good functional result. Clinical relevance: Taylor spatial frame combined with other orthopedic approaches can be a useful tool while dealing with neglected knee dislocations.
