Isolated anterior dislocation of the proximal tibiofibular joint.


Three cases of isolated anterior dislocation in the proximal tibiofibular joint are presented. The common aetiological feature was that injury occurred with the knee in hyperflexion and the foot inverted and extended. The symptoms of locking, pain and giving way may lead to an erroneous diagnosis of meniscal injury. Early diagnosis in the acute case enabled easy reduction. In the inveterate cases, resection of the head of the fibula gave complete relief of symptoms.
