Late Presenting Traumatic Obturator Dislocation-A Rare Case Report

Author(s): Ali Mohamed Ali, Faiton Ndesanjo Mandari

We describe a case of a traumatic obturator hip dislocation in a 50-year old adult male presenting three weeks after injury. All attempts at closed reduction under general anaesthesia had failed upon which open reduction was successfully accomplished using the minimally invasive anterior approach. The patient was then discharged 5 days post-op and advised to progressively weight bear with crutches as tolerated for a month with limited extension. Follow-up of the patient after 3 months showed satisfactory recovery without signs of avascular necrosis (AVN).
