    Surgical Treatment of Acetabulum Top Compression Fracture with Sea Gull Sign

    Schematic diagram of open reduction and internal fixation of acetabular roof compression fractures via an ilioinguinal approach, fracture line, reduction, and internal fixation position are displayed from the inner pelvis view. (A) The incision for the ilioinguinal approach starts from the 1/3 junction of the iliac crest, extends anteriorly to 2 cm above the inguinal ligament, then curves medially and inferiorly to end 2 cm above the pubic symphysis. (B) The anterior column, anterior wall and posterior column fracture line are exposed. (C) After reduction of the posterior column, a plate is inserted along the lower margin of the true pelvis to fix the fracture across the joints. (D) The fracture fragments in the anterior wall are uncovered, revealing the acetabular roof compression fractures and femoral head fragments. (E) The femoral head is used as a template to achieve reduction; a periosteum screwdriver or pry bar is used to pry downward and push the collapsed articular surface so that the articular surface lies flat or slightly higher than the surrounding articular surface. (F) The anterior column and anterior wall fracture are set and a reconstruction plate is placed along the anterior margin of the true pelvic for cross articular fracture fixation.

    Combined thoracic-abdominal approach. (A) The site of incision for removal of the 10th rib, suitable for treating spinal tuberculosis in T12–L1. (B) Via the above incision, the thoracic spine can be exposed via a transthoracic or extrapleural approach; below it, the lumbar spine can be exposed via an extraperitoneal approach; in the middle, the diaphragm can be cut open to connect the thoracic and lumbar segments.
