About this book


This book is intended as a state-of-the-art reference guide that will help surgeons arrive at the correct diagnosis, make appropriate treatment decisions, and perform various surgical procedures in patients with intra-articular hip fractures. 

The volume describes the complex anatomy of the acetabulum and proximal femur and correlates it with appearances in radiological imaging. In addition, it explains the process of assessing and classifying typical fracture patterns, presenting and discussing specific, up-to-date treatment strategies.  

The book clearly highlights the advantages and disadvantages of several surgical approaches for the hip and pelvis, such as surgical hip dislocation, hip arthroscopy, the pararectus approach, and combined approaches. Individual chapters are also devoted to the management of specific fracture types: acetabular fractures, femoral head (Pipkin) fractures, femoral neck fractures, traumatic hip dislocations, and pathological fractures due to osteoporosis or tumors. For each surgical approach, the authors identify typical complications and document long-term outcomes. This book is part of the series Fracture Management Joint by Joint.
