Background and Purpose:Surgical hip dislocation by trochanteric flip osteotomy facilitates access to acetabular and femoral head fractures. Furthermore, it allows evaluation of cartilage damage and vascularity of the femoral head. In this study the potential benefits of this procedure for improved fracture management and for prognostic assessment were investigated.Patients and Methods:From July 1997 to October 1999, 20 selected patients with displaced acetabular fractures (n = 12), femoral head… CONTINUE READING
