Abstract

A patient is described with a ligamentous disruption at the L4/L5 level in association with bilateral, traumatic dislocations of the hip. The diagnostic evaluation, acute intervention, and definitive stabilisation are reported. The unstable spine posed a problem in treatment with regard to the timing and technique of the reduction of the hips.
