Background and Aim: Recurrent hemarthrosis results in synovitis and destructive arthropathy in hemophilic patients.
Anterior cruciate ligament injury is the most common reason of traumatic knee hemarthrosis. The reason for acute hemarthrosis is injury to the branches of the middle geniculate artery.
Retropatellar fat pad was excised draining the hemarthrosis and knee was washed with normal saline.
Recurrent patellar instability is not an uncommon entity with acute patellar dislocation accounting for 2% to 3% of all knee injuries [1] and is the second most common cause of traumatic knee hemarthrosis.
