Abstract

We report a case of traumatic anterior dislocation of the left knee with an ipsilateral tibial shaft fracture in association with popliteal artery and common peroneal nerve injuries. To our knowledge, such a combination of injuries has not been reported before. All components of this injury were recognised and treated promptly with rehabilitation commencing early, resulting in a good functional outcome. We discuss the possible injury mechanism and management of this unusual case.
