A case study of bilateral congenital dislocated knees with a review of non-operative management of congenital dislocated knees.
Objectives: To raise the awareness of colleagues and other medical professionals to this uncommon condition and to improve the knowledge of medical personnel in the conservative management of congenital dislocation of the knee.
Large post intubation tracheal tears are usually detected intra-operatively due to unstable signs namely impaired ventilation and mediastinal emphysema and often require surgical management. Smaller tracheal tears are often missed during anaesthesia and recognized during the postoperative period. Conservative management should be considered in these latter cases.
