Traumatic Patellar Dislocation

Acute dislocation of the patella is a traumatic injury involving a lateral dislocation of the patella, usually coupled with a morphological anomaly of the patella or the femoral trochlea.

This is an adolescent injury in ballet that occurs during the performance of pirouettes, développés, or jumps: any movement that is carried out using a violent contraction of the quadriceps femoris, during flexion - external rotation of the knee.
