Traumatic obturator dislocation of the hip joint: A case report and review of the literature
We describe a case of traumatic obturator hip dislocation in an adult. Closed reduction was done under general anesthesia. Post-reduction radiographs showed concentric and congruent reduction of the right hip. Traction was applied for three weeks followed by progressive mobilization and loading. Follow up for two years after the injury showed that the patient achieved a full recovery without any evidence of hip pain or a decreased range of motion. There were no signs of osteonecrosis of the femoral head.
