In the author’s thesis (Letournel 1961), the associated both-column fracture was described, but it was not until 1963, following the description of eleven operated cases, that a further account was submitted. Rigault (1962) collected the first cases of D’Aubigné under the name “central displacements of the acetabulum”. This description, which alludes to the method of production of the lesion, has unfortunately the inconvenience of using yet again a term we find imprecise: it does not give an adequate account of the injury to the bone framework which limits the acetabulum and which is split in a special and typical manner.
