Disorders of the Lower Extremity

  • Keith L. Stanley


Fractures of the hip and pelvis usually result from significant trauma, such as motor vehicular accidents (MVAs) or falls. Sometimes these fractures occur in young patients involved in athletics as well. Fractures to the acetabulum, iliac wing, or pelvis usually require the services of an orthopedic specialist. The same is true for fractures of the femoral head, neck, or shaft.1
