Keywords: Dislocation

Surgical dislocation of the hip was introduced by Ganz et al in 2001 and popularized by studies on the anatomy of the medial femoral circumflex artery and studies confirming the safety of surgical dislocation of the hip. Surgical dislocation of the hip has been performed to manage many conditions; however, studies detailing long-term outcomes are lacking. This video discusses the indications, preoperative workup, surgical setup, technique, and postoperative protocol for surgical dislocation of the hip to manage a posterior wall fracture. In addition, the video discusses two studies that review the intermediate and long-term radiographic and functional outcomes of surgical dislocation of the hip for the management of posterior wall fractures and their relationship to survivorship of the procedure.
