Abstract

We read the recently published article [1] in your journal with great interest. This study has compared the efficacy of isolated buttress plate fixation with the combination of intra-wall/ lag screw and buttress plate in the surgical management of posterior wall acetabular fractures. The authors have highlighted the advantage of avoiding inadvertent intraarticular screw penetration and have also shown comparable outcomes with the use of isolated buttress plate.
As the reader, we would like to put forward some concerns based on the study analysis.
