Newer established surgical exposures of the pelvis have allowed great strides in attaining the goal of sufficient access to the fractured acetabulum to perform the required reduction. JBJS Essential Surgical Techniques (EST) is excited to present a digital collection of technique articles on this topic, authored by notable authorities in this field from the Universities of Bern and Leeds and taking advantage of the EST multimedia platform. Rather than focusing on the type of acetabular fracture according to a specific classification, these articles describe surgical approaches that can be used to access specific portions of the osseous pelvis as required for optimal reduction and for the type of planned fixation.
