There is fracture through the superior right posterior acetabulum, with posterior rim avulsion, posterior hip dislocation and a dislocation at the symphysis pubis with comminuted fracture of the left pubic bone.
Posterior hip dislocations are much more common than anterior hip dislocations, and are most often the result of motor vehicle accidents. Shear (or slice) or anterior cortical fractures of the femoral head are an associated injury sometimes seen.
