Diagnostic, instrumental and therapeutic course in acetabular fractures

Zinghi G., Trono M.


PDF  


Background. In recent years road accidents and accidents at work have been the cause of a large number of acetabular fractures. Due to the anatomy of this region, the difficulty of surgical exposure, and anatomic relations with noble structures, these lesions are some of the most difficult to treat in traumatology. Based on our personal experience, this study aimed to show the diagnostic and therapeutic course of these fractures.
Methods. A total of 517 acetabular fractures were treated over 16 years, of which 510 underwent follow-up for 24 months.
Results. The results obtained were excellent in 35.2%, good in 33.1%, adequate in 11.9% and poor in 19.6%.
Conclusions. Surgery generally guarantees results that are difficult to achieve using the non-invasive treatment used in the past. However, it is important to follow the essential steps in the diagnostic process in order to classify and identify these lesions and plan the procedure appropriately.
