Hip Dislocation

  • Early identification and reduction is key to prevent complications
  • Always perform a full trauma and neuro exam, particularly of ipsilateral joints as concomitant injuries are common with traumatic dislocations
  • Don’t be reassured by negative post-reduction XRs as small fractures can occur. You should always consider CT
