Abstract

OBJECTIVES:: To document the initial treatment of displaced acetabular fractures among older adults across multiple trauma centers and to investigate factors that influence the decision to operate and the choice of operative procedure (open reduction internal fixation [ORIF] vs. total hip arthroplasty [THA]). DESIGN:: Retrospective observational study. SETTING:: 15 US level I trauma centers participating in the Major Extremity Trauma Research Consortium (METRC). PATIENTS/PARTICIPANTS:: 269 patients 60 years or older admitted for treatment of a displaced acetabular fracture. INTERVENTION:: None. MAIN OUTCOME MEASUREMENT:: Treatment. RESULTS:: Sixty percent of fractures (n=162) were treated operatively. Younger age (
