Abstract

Acetabular fractures present with a bimodal distribution, as is often associated with traumatic injuries presenting to trauma and orthopaedic surgeons. It is an injury that mandates a multidisciplinary team approach as it is associated with injuries to another organ system and/or the lower extremities. The implementation of Advanced Trauma and Life Support (ATLS) principals has led to significant improvements and standardisation of how this injury is managed outside of the hospital setting and emergency management however controversies exist regarding the definitive treatment of this condition. A literature review of this interesting and common place fracture is presented whilst highlighting the areas of debate regarding its further management.
