Summary: A modified ilioinguinal approach for acetabular fractures is presented. The approach allows surgical exposure of the anterior column as well as the contralateral rami, the symphysis pubis, and the medial wall of the acetabulum. Direct access to the quadrilateral surface and retroacetabular surface for plate or screw application is also possible.
