Posterior labral tear as a block to reduction in an anterior hip dislocation.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The patient presented with an anterior dislocation of the hip that could not be centrically reduced by closed methods. Computed tomographic imaging after trial reduction revealed a posterior fragment that was limiting reduction. At the time of open reduction, a large posterior labral tear with a small avulsed posterior acetabular rim of bone was found to be blocking the reduction.
