Abstract

Floating hip describes a rare combination of fractures/dislocation and is usually seen in multiple injured patients, more often in young males involved in high-energy automotive/motorcycle trauma. These fractures are often associated to chest trauma, other skeletal fractures or polytrauma. A “floating hip” injury is rare but a surgical challenging. Each case needs to be planned and addressed. We present a case of floating hip injury in a male patient, treated successfully with ORIF, followed by an uneventful postoperative period.
