Restricted vs. Free Knee Range Of Motion For Primary Traumatic Patellar Dislocation
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Treatments||locked knee brace|
|Sponsor||Tampere University Hospital|
|Start date||December 2005|
|End date||January 2007|
|Trial identifier||NCT01344915, PATRCTFIN|
Knee immobilization in near extension has been proposed as a nonoperative treatment for primary traumatic patellar dislocation, although there exist no prospective studies regarding the method of immobilization. The objective of this prospective randomized study was to compare the clinical outcome after nonoperative treatment with restricted vs. free range of motion (ROM) for primary traumatic patellar dislocation.
|Intervention model||parallel assignment|
Male or female participants from 18 years up to 50 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - A primary (first-time) patellar dislocation verified by clinical examination - Signs of patellar dislocation in MRI Exclusion Criteria: - anyone with previous patellar instability - osteochondral fracture requiring surgery - associated knee injuries
|Official title||RESTRICTED VS. FREE KNEE RANGE OF MOTION FOR PRIMARY TRAUMATIC PATELLAR DISLOCATION: A PROSPECTIVE RANDOMIZED STUDY|
