Hip column reconstructed


September 9, 2013:

A 71 year old male had a road accident fracturing his left acetabulum as well as sustaining a transverse fracture of the posterior wall. 3D CT reconstruct and judet views showed break in anterior column, posterior column as well as the posterior wall fracture and a dislocated femoral head. Open Reduction and Internal Fixation through Kocher Langen Back Approach was done. Posterior wall was fixed with 3 compression screws and posterior column reconstructed over the wall. Head was reduced back in place. Anterior column reduction was done indirectly using a collinear clamp.
