Protrusive Fracture Dislocation of the Hip with Preservation of Function


The authors report a rare case of a young man of 20 who presented following an accident of the public highway a protrusive neglected fracture dislocation of the hip without impaired function. This is an observation describing frequent lesion entity in our context in the absence of major functional impact and the old character of the lesion. The abstention was the therapeutic adopted choice. We will discuss the mechanisms, our therapeutic attitude and evolution of this clinical entity through the analysis of this observation.
