Abstract

Simultaneous anterior and posterior hip dislocation is an unusual injury. A unique case is presented, consisting of bilateral asymmetric hip dislocation with associated femoral head, femoral shaft, and acetabular fractures resulting from a motorcycle collision. The mechanisms of injury, management, role of imaging, and complications of this injury complex are discussed, with a review of the relevant literature.
