Post-operative complications and radiological outcomes were evaluated.
RESULTS: Total 27 patients with Acetabular fracture were treated. Excellent radiological outcome was
achieved in 29.6% of the patients, good radiological outcome was achieved in 48.2%, fair& pair
radiological outcome was achieved in 11.1% of the patients. Post-operative complications like sciatic
nerve injury was developed in 2 patients, myositis ossificans was in One (01) patient and Four patients
