Abstract/Notes

Objective: The purpose of this case study is to describe the evaluation and management of patellar dislocations and the different approaches used from providers in different countries.

Clinical Features: An individual dislocated her left patella while traveling abroad and received subsequent care in Thailand, China, and the United States.

Intervention and Outcome: Nonoperative treatment protocols including manual closed reduction of the patella, casting of the leg, and rehabilitation exercises were employed.

Conclusion: Receipt of care when abroad can be challenging. The patient’s knee range of motion and pain continued to improve when she was diligent about performing the home exercise program. This case highlights the importance of a thorough examination, a proper regimen of care, and patient counseling to ensure a full recovery and minimize the chance of re-injury.
