Traumatic "windblown knees": case report of bilateral knee ligament rupture of the opposite compartment of contralateral knees


, : Traumatic "windblown knees": case report of bilateral knee ligament rupture of the opposite compartment of contralateral knees. Journal of Trauma 20(4): 336-338

An unusual case of rupture of the medial and posterior ligaments of the left knee, and lateral ligaments of the right knee, due to a direct vehicular blow is reported. Surgical repair of the left knee and conservative treatment of the right (lateral ligaments) gave excellent results. The types of lesions produced on each knee could almost be predicted by the sites of skin abrasions.
