Preview

Acetabular fracture patients often have associated injuries

Restoration of hip joint congruity and stability are the treatment goals

Stable concentrically reduced fractures can be considered for non-operative management

Operative treatment is indicated for fractures with hip joint instability or incongruity

Choosing the proper surgical approach is one of the most important treatment aspects

Although the surgery is demanding, an experienced surgeon can obtain excellent results.
