Abstract

The initial and definitive management of acetabular fractures can be complicated by a variety of associated injuries. As with all injuries, a careful analysis of the patient and the injury pattern is paramount. The orthopedic surgeon must recognize associated injuries in the proximity of the acetabular fracture because they have an impact on the timing, surgical approaches, and outcome from the acetabular fracture. A plan must be formulated that optimally treats both injuries, either in a sequential or a simultaneous manner.
