This prospective study was conducted at the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Calcutta National Medical College, between July 2015 and January 2017, to compare the outcomes of the treatment of Acetabulum fractures by operative and conservative methods.

The labrum is a fibrocartilaginous structure attached to the peripheral acetabulum. It facilitates appropriate acetabular formation during skeletal maturation, stabilizes the femoral head by deepening the acetabulum, and seals synovial fluid within the hip joint.
In line to line technique, bone is prepared in a way that the size of acetabulum is same as that of implant cup so there is minimal risk of acetabular fracture.
In order to verify anatomic geometry as seen on CT, acetabular registration is accomplished by touching the probe to 32 required points on the acetabulum as identified on the software.
The femoral head and acetabular cartilage adjacent to the bullet did not appear to be traumatized but the bullet was found firmly embedded in the acetabulum.
For instance, there is associated adaptive shortening of the soft tissues, capsular constriction, increased femoral anteversion, acetabular dysplasia, presence of obstructing structures such as the fibrofatty tissue in the acetabulum, hypertrophied ligamentum teres, the transverse acetabular ligament and fixed inversion of limbus.1-4,13,14 Femoral diaphyseal shortening is superior to traction as an aid in operative reduction of DDH in older children.
The head of the femur is the "ball" that fits into the "socket" of the acetabulum of the pelvis.
After prepped, the leg was abducted to approach the pubic segment with dissection and preservation of the insertion of the pectineus muscle, followed by approximately one centimeter pubic ostectomy near the medial aspect of the acetabulum. The first patient underwent pubic osteotomy and not ostectomy.
For easy movement and hits the femoral head moves in the acetabulum. In his case due to the infection and both right and left hip joints normal cartilage on femoral head and acetabulum was destroyed and cause fusion of femoral head and acetabulum.
Abnormal hip development may involve bone structures (acetabulum and proximal femur) and the joint cartilage and capsule [2, 3].
