Zusammenfassung

Distorsionen am Kniegelenk bedürfen einer genauen diagnostischen Abklärung um zu beurteilen, welche Verletzungsfolgen einer operativen bzw. funktionell konservativen Behandlung bedürfen. Die klinische respektive Narkoseuntersuchung stellt das sicherste Verfahren bei ligamentären Verletzungen dar, die Arthroskopie bleibt speziellen Fragestellungen vorbehalten. Kniegelenksluxationen stellen aufgrund des hohen Anteiles von Gefäß- und Nervenbegleitverletzungen chirurgische Notfälle dar und bedürfen einer raschen diagnostischen Abklärung und Behandlung.

”Distorsion” Injuries and Dislocations of large Joints: the Knee Joint

Summary

Recent “distorsion” injuries of the knee joint should be diagnosed with great precision. While injuries that do not produce instability should be treated conservatively, early surgical repair is the treatment of choice for the unstable knee. If a reliable evaluation is not possible, a general anesthetic is required; arthroscopy is reserved for special questions. Dislocation of the knee is a true surgical emergency. The vascular insult caused by the severe injury requires immediate attention.
