    I bet that guys wife has a pelvic fracture too

  3. Hisham Alkarkhy

    Answer 2
    Age below 40 y. is a protective factor

  4. Funsix


  5. Orthobullets

    The preferred response is:

    2. Age

    This patient sustained a native left acetabular fracture and underwent open reduction internal fixation (ORIF). Of the options in the question, the only protective factor against early conversion to total hip arthroplasty (THA) is his age, being less than 40 years.

    The survival of the native hip after acetabular fracture ORIF is dependent on multiple factors including patient age (<40 years), fracture pattern (simple fractures), initial fracture displacement (<20 mm), quality of reduction, and absence of injury to the femoral head. While ORIF can be successful when these protective factors are present, osteopenia, pre-injury hip arthritis and significant chondral impaction injuries makes ORIF difficult and more prone to failure. In the elderly patient with these injury characteristics and/or delayed presentation, THA should be considered in the index procedure.
