Associated Anterior and Posterior Hemitransverse Fractures
We identified this association in 1960, and in our series of 940 cases it has occurred on 62 occasions (6.58%). It comprises an anterior fracture of the acetabulum, which may be a fracture of the anterior wall or a fracture of the anterior column, together with a fracture of the posterior column, which is exactly the same as the posterior half of a pure transverse fracture. Accordingly, we have called this component a hemitransverse posterior fracture (Table 13.1).
