Intermediate to Long-Term Results Following Traumatic Hip Dislocation

Video Abstract: Traumatic Hip Dislocations

A video abstract is available with the new study by Jaecker et al. in JBJS: 

Intermediate to Long-Term Results Following Traumatic Hip Dislocation. Characteristics, CT-Based Analysis, and Patient-Reported Outcome Measures 

Researchers in Germany analyzed traumatic hip dislocations and factors that may predict clinical outcomes of these rare but severe injuries. Their analysis included 112 patients with a mean age of 43 years. Sixty-nine (61.6%) of the patients were available for follow-up, with a mean follow-up of 6 years (range, 2 to 12 years).

As reported by the authors, “Traumatic hip dislocations are predominantly associated with Pipkin and acetabular rim fractures, leading to overall limitations of activities of daily living, sports, and sexual function at intermediate to long-term follow-up. Patients with associated acetabular rim or Pipkin Type-IV fractures are most likely to require THA [total hip arthroplasty] for the treatment of osteonecrosis or posttraumatic OA [osteoarthritis] and are at greater risk for sustaining sciatic nerve injury.”
