Abstract

Fractures of the acetabulum after low-energy trauma in geriatric patients suffering from osteoporosis are increasing in number and significance due to demographic changes. The results of current therapeutic principles though tend to be poor in this population, while risk and treatment-related morbidity of surgical or conservative approaches are substantial.The treatment of geriatric patients can be challenging, not only because of their often complex medical history. They essentially need rapid functional restoration and return to their familiar environment to avoid general decline unlike younger patients for whom rather the long-term perspective is crucial. This article critically discusses the current literature and reports on first experiences with a new surgical concept in six geriatric patients aged 82-91 years: the combination of an anterior minimally invasive approach for open reduction and internal fixation of the acetabulum combined with an anterior minimally invasive (AMIS®) approach to the hip for total hip arthroplasty with promising short-term results.
