Open acetabular fracture: Case report and literature review



Open acetabular fracture: Case report and literature review



Trauma Case Reports 20: 100180



Acetabular fractures are a rare injury, with a reported annual incidence of 3 patients per 100,000 per year. Open fractures of the acetabulum are extremely rare, with only explosive penetrating trauma (blast or gunshot injury) being previously reported. An open acetabular fracture as a result of blunt trauma is presented, in which the only indication was a wound in the buttock, in which early definitive surgical management of the injury provided a good clinical outcome.
