Background: Patella dislocation in children and adolescent arouses great interest both from the etiopathogenic and therapeutic point of view. The most frequent dislocations are the lateral ones and among them the recurrent dislocations. The etiopathogenic diagnosis is essential and the treatment differentiated, depending on this diagnosis. Often the etiopathogenesis is complex and the treatment must be individualized to each case. Purpose: The paper mainly exposes the etiopathogenic diagnosis, the important stage in the preoperative plenum and the differentiated treatment for children and adolescents. Method: The study of the literature highlights multiple surgical interventions used to stabilize the dislocated patella. All these interventions address structural and/or functional changes and are supported by the etiopathogenic diagnosis. Personal case studies benefited from an active process of stabilizing the patella. Patients were fully reintegrated post-surgically into daily life and school sports. Conclusion: A correct diagnosis allows the choice of an appropriate treatment. In cases with complex etiopathogenesis or syndromic diseases, two or more surgical interventions are used. All surgical interventions in children and adolescents aim to stabilize the patella without injuring the growth cartilage; periarticular soft tissues are used to induce structural changes that improve the configuration and stability of the knee before the growth of the growth cartilage.
