Knee dislocations are rare but challenging injuries. This review describes the diagnostic work-up of knee dislocations. It covers the classification of knee dislocations, the initial assessment during the first hours, the secondary assessment during the first 2 weeks and anatomical considerations. Determining a treatment strategy after knee dislocations requires recognizing the severity of the injury, specifying the extent and location of all damaged structures and understanding their combined effect on joint kinematics.
