Abstract

Introduction: For decades, acetabular fractures were treated conservatively. Judet et al. in 1960s established the operative treatment of these fractures by continuous improvement of pre-operative evaluation and classification of fractures. Several studies demonstrated that accurate fracture reduction decreases the incidence of post-traumatic arthritis and improves functional outcome. Case Series: We report 67 consecutive patients who underwent surgical treatment for acetabular fracture; 44 patients were available for follow-up. In 35 (79.5%) cases, congruent reductions were achieved. The final mean Harris hip score was 81.8 (53-95). Functional outcomes according to Harris score were excellent and good in 31 patients (70.5%). Conclusions: The results of internal fixation of displaced acetabular fractures in our series were satisfactory. Copyright © 2013, Trauma Research Center; Published by Kowsar Corp.
