Abstract

Fracture acetabulum is a grave injury and a challenge for orthopedic surgeons. Anterior and posterior approaches have been described for fixation of acetabulum fractures. The modified Stoppa approach is considered an alternate to anterior approach, which provides access to pelvis from inside the cavity. The purpose of this article is to review the available literature on use of the modified Stoppa approach in acetabulum fractures. The available data suggest that modified Stoppa approach is useful in anterior acetabulum fractures and some posterior acetabulum fractures, especially where buttressing of medial wall is required.
