Bilateral Traumatic Anterior Dislocation of the Hips: A Case Report

Abstract

Even though the incidence of traumatic anterior dislocation of the hip is approximately 15% of all traumatic dislocation, the incidence of bilateral traumatic anterior dislocation is extremely rare. In a review of literature, the authors could find only one case report of bilateral traumatic anterior dislocation of the hip and no case in Korea. The mechanism of traumatic anterior dislocation of the hip is forced abduction. This paper is a case report of a traumatic bilateral anterior dislocation of the hips in a 36 year old labor who injured by fall down from about 5 meter in height. The case was treated by means of closed reduction, traction and physical therapy. Follow up study was performed for one year and obtained good result.
