Enlocated

Enlocated is a term popular among Australasian (Australia and New Zealand) radiologists and orthopaedic surgeons to describe a joint that is not dislocated. 

It does not appear in the Oxford dictionary, nor is it widely used elsewhere in English-speaking countries. Most authors prefer the terms "in joint" or "congruent".
