2. List indications for acute total hip arthroplasty after acetabular fracture.
3. Recognize technical considerations for late total hip arthroplasty following operative treatment of acetabular fractures.
4. Discuss the treatment approach to acetabular fractures and identify factors affecting the outcome.
5. Review the evaluation of and surgical planning for femoral nonunion.
