Superior dislocation hip with anterior column acetabular fracture - open reduction and internal fixation using a twin incision technique

Nipun Jindal, Sohan S Sankhala


Superior variety of anterior dislocation of the hip is a rare injury. Its occurrence with acetabular fractures has been documented infrequently. We report a case of superior dislocation of the hip with anterior column acetabular fracture. Open reduction of the hip and internal fixation of the fracture was carried out using a twin incision technique. The course to recovery has been uneventful.
