Acetabular Fractures

What are Acetabular Fractures?

The acetabulum is the hip socket. It is located at the outer end of the pelvis. It is a hemispherical cavity. The ball shaped end of the thighbone sits in it. The two together form a ball and socket joint. Cartilage lines the joint to keep the movement smooth.

Acetabular Fractures is specifically a fracture of the cup or acetabulum. Fractures of the acetabulum are harder to treat because access to this bone is more difficult, and because of the acetabulum’s closeness to the major blood vessels to the legs, the sciatic nerve (the major nerve that arises from the lower spine and provides sensation and movement to the leg and foot), the intestines, the ureter and the bladder.

Unlike a hip fracture, which can be treated relatively easily, to repair an Acetabular Fracture, the orthopedic surgeon, must, in essence, fix the broken bones from the inside out.
