Literature reports have concluded that the acetabulum is an accurate sex determinant of the hip bone (Rajangam et al., 1991; Murphy, 2000).
(22) On radiography, they appear as a well-corticated ossicle adjacent to the acetabulum, most common anterosuperiorly.
Failure to proceed to line to line technique may result in possible complications like fracture of the acetabulum, improperly seated acetabular cup which draws its stability only from screw fixation or abandoning the cementless procedure in favour of a cemented cup to achieve the stability.
Move the probe around the acetabulum and note the direction it moves on the screen compared to the direction the user thinks it is moving.
The most common major complication encountered in hip arthroscopy is intra-abdominal fluid extravasation.7 In our case, hip joint and acetabulum were traumatized by a bullet, so it is probably more vulnerable to fluid leakage and intraabdominal fluid extravasations.
In hip dysplasia, the acetabulum may be shallow, so it does not hold the femoral head firmly in place.
So it is plausible to affirm that the difficulty in this case occurred due to the skeletal maturity of the operated dog, since the calcified symphysis would not allow adequate acetabular ventroversion, besides that the pubic osteotomy in the acetabulum's medial aspect, instead of an ostectomy, favored the contact of the sectioned surfaces of the pubis that limited the segment's rotation due to contact.
Type IIa means immature hips (hips that can subluxate/dislocate, although reduced in the acetabulum), with alpha angle higher than 50[degrees] (in infants younger than three months).
Here, we present a case of pulmonary embolism occurring after the induction of anesthesia and positioning in a patient with an extensive right acetabulum fracture.
On the acetabular side, the acetabulum component implantation site was located at the point where the original acetabulum contacted the lateral wall of the teardrop and achieved a cup CE angle of more than 0[degrees].
