Abstract

Four of the 569 patients with fractures of the acetabulum operated upon within 21 days after the accident developed pseudarthroses (0.7%). These occurred in two both-column fractures and in two associated transverse and posterior wall fractures. All four cases had a slightly imperfect reduction.
