We describe the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and complications of a 27-year-old male paraskiier who sustained a closed high-velocity knee dislocation after colliding with a tree at a speed of 45 mph and falling 40 feet to the ground. Extensive surgery to repair and recon- struct the knee included open lateral capsular repair, open anatomical posterolateral corner reconstruction with split Achilles tendon allograft, open iliotibial band reconstruction with Achilles tendon allograft, arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with bone– patellar tendon–bone autograft, and double-bundle posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with Achilles tendon allograft for the anterolateral bundle and tibialis anterior tendon allograft for the posteromedial bundle. Follow-up surgery was performed to treat arthrobrosis. Postoperative stress radiographs and subjective outcomes demonstrated that stability was excellent overall.
