Abstract:

The ilioinguinal anterior approach for surgical stabilization of fractures of the acetabulum is a difficult procedure but gives an excellent view of the entire anterior and posterior columns of acetabulum unlike the posterior approach. Orthopaedic surgeons do not favour this approach for risk of neurovascular injuries. Cadaveric studies of this approach has revealed interesting observations contrary to existing available literature. The findings are discussed in detail in comparison with western literature. The neurovascular structures that will be encountered during the course of the procedure are comparatively lesser in incidence and the approach can be undertaken without any undue complications.

Keywords: acetabular fractures, ilioinguinal approach, neurovascular injuries, cadaveric study.
