Enlocated is a term popular primarily among Australasian (Australia and New Zealand) radiologists and orthopedic 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, although it does appear in a number of publications 1-4. Most authors prefer the terms "in joint" or "congruent".
