Traumatology involves the study of wounds and injuries caused by accidents or violence, and the surgical therapy and repair of this damage. Branches of Traumatology include Medical Traumatology and Psychological Traumatology. When it comes to trauma, medical and psychological Traumatology goes hand in hand. Types of trauma include car accidents, gunshot wounds, concussions, PTSD from incidents, and others. Medical traumas are treated with the help of surgeries, however, they can still cause physiological trauma and other stress factors. Likewise, Left Acetabular Fracture is often a complex injury and the result of high-energy trauma and associated injuries.
For the patients with a traumatized acetabulum, accurate radiographic diagnosis and classification are important for an effective clinical care. Acetabular Fractures are caused by high kinetic energy. Trauma-related Acetabular Fractures are often complex, resulting in multiple fragments and secondary fracture lines.
Computed Tomography (CT) provides information regarding the extent of the fracture and is complementary to radiography to determine the spatial arrangement of fracture fragments.
