Is the anatomical reduction of osteochondral impaction in the acetabular fractures will improve the functional outcome? Despite the increasing amount of literature related to the management of anteromedial dome impactions and marginal impactions, there are still remaining issues and controversies pertaining mainly to the exact anatomy and location of the lesion, the best method of reduction, the need and type of subchondral void filling, the best method of stabilization, the need of reduction in elderly population and its true value as an outcome prognostic factor.
In 1965, Emile Letournel and Robert Judet reported their experiences on acetabular fractures at the 5th day of the Raymond Poincaré Hospital in Garches. Classification Letournel is still relevant and in use today. Many studies have sought to determine if the treatment had to be surgical or orthopedic. Although the standard treatment of displaced fractures of the acetabulum is the reduction and osteosynthesis, some advocate the THA in elderly patients with comminuted fracture of the acetabulum, impaction of the femoral head or acetabular impaction affecting more than 40% of the articular surface and including bearing zone. All these treatments and those supported have been studied in the literature. However the study of the laying of total hip remote trauma after acetabular fracture osteosynthesis or treated conservatively, is not rich in literature. Only a few articles have been published in recent years. Indeed, a recent review of the literature are nearly 11 series focusing on the results remotely hip prostheses for treatment of acetabular fracture. These two prospective series with between 21 and 63 patients. All authors report rates well above those reported complications for primary arthroplasty, with a revision of rates ranging between 0 and 26.5%. Fractures of the acetabulum are covered in our service by one operator using the same release technique based on the stiffening. The objective of this study is to determine whether the systematic surgical treatment of these patients by an experienced operator reduces the high complication rate.
The absence of methodologically, prospectively and retrospectively collected information on the use of the Quadrilateral Surface Plate (QSP) in the given indication requires a multicenter approach. Using a registry to get more information about the effectiveness and possible benefits or complications during the surgery and during the post-operative treatment is adequate and necessary to get new insights to the use of the Quadrilateral Surface Plate.
The purpose of this prospective study is to compare hip adductor strength and obturator nerve palsy between acetabular fracture patients whose fracture was reduced and fixated using the modified Stoppa approach (subjects) and pelvic fracture patients (controls) using physical strength testing, radiographs, clinical assessment, and a validated functional outcome questionnaire. The investigators' research hypothesis is that there will be less strength and higher incidence of obturator nerve palsy in patients treated with the modified Stoppa approach (intervention) than in patients treated without the modified Stoppa approach (controls).
