Measurements of the percentage of remaining posterior acetabulum on computed tomography (CT) scan (the Acetabular Fracture Index) in posterior fracture dislocations of the hip were evaluated to determine the stability of the joint. All hips with less than 34% of the remaining posterior acetabulum were unstable. Hips with greater than 55% were stable… CONTINUE READING
