  • 1Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Keimyung university, School of Medicine, Tae-Gu, Korea.


Traumatic hip dislocation associated with ipsilateral femur shaft fracture is a very rare injury and often results from high velocity injury such as traffic accidents or fall from a height. This combined injury was first documented by Sir Ashley Cooper in 1823. Wiltberger, Mitchell and Hedrick estimated its incidence at one out of 100,000 cases of fractured femoral shaft. Until 1978 there have been only 3 cases were reported of anterior hip dislocation with ipsilateral femoral shaft fracture in the literature. We have recently had the opportunity to manage the patient with anterior hip dislocation with ipsilateral femoral shaft segmental fracture and contralateral acetabular fracture.
