Abstract :

 

Background: Aim of the study was to evaluate the results of operative procedures for fixation of Acetabular fractures and the complications and functional outcomes related to them.

Material and Methods: Total of 20 patients who presented at DMC ,Ludhiana and who presented with acetabular  fractures  between 2002 to 2005 were included in the study and were analyzed prospectively  for  maximum of 15 years  to assess  their functional outcomes after operation .Data of patients related to duration of hospital stay, mode of injury, injury surgery interval, associated injuries, surgical approach, amount of blood loss during surgery, post operative complications and functional scores were recorded.

Results: Out of 20 patients evaluated in the study, functional outcome was assessed according to Harris Hip Score. Excellent results were obtained in 13 patients, good results in 2 patients, fair results in 2 patients and 3 patients had poor results.

Conclusion: As compared to patients treated by conservative means, operative fixation of acetabular fractures provides stable fixation and better results.
