Mechanics of Acetabular Fractures

  • Emile Letournel

Abstract

Fractures of the acetabulum occur as a result of force acting between this part and the head of the femur, the last link of a chain of transmission from the greater trochanter, the knee or the foot. Alternatively, a blow on the back of the pelvis can have the same action.
