JBJS JOPA Image Quiz: A 15-Year-Old Girl with Dislocated Patella

clou3_REV_9-13-16.jpgThis month’s Image Quiz from the JBJS Journal of Orthopaedics for Physician Assistants(JOPA) presents the case of a teenage girl who dislocated her patella while playing volleyball. The quiz provides four postreduction images, two radiographs and two fat-suppressed MRI scans, and then readers are presented with two questions:

  • What is the next best step in this patient’s treatment?
  • Which concomitant condition does NOT cause an increased risk of patellar instability?
