During so many years of operative management of acetabular fractures, we have pursued a dream of finding a method of approach which would permit us to cope with all problems of reduction, whatever type of fracture was involved. This approach would have to enable us to reach at the same time, and with the same degree of ease, both columns of the acetabulum and also to allow access to the inside of the pelvis. The latter is indispensable in the control of some fracture fragments, and sometimes necessary in order to explore nerves and vessels included in the fracture line or lacerated thereby.
