A bibliographic review on the traumatic luxation of the knee was made. Special emphasis was given to the analysis of its incidence, classification, mechanism of production and diagnosis from the clinical and radiographic point of view. The authors went deep into the behaviour of the injuries associated with this traumatic entity, such as the vascular and neurological injuries, fractures and ligamental injuries. To conclude, the modalities of the initial and definitive treatment were exposed.
