Subject: Acetabular fracture after THA

Dear All, A colleague of mine from another hospital requests opinion. A female 39 years old was operated ~1 year ago - right side THA for hypoplastic hip. Yesterday she was going to the hospital for THA of the second hip but got involved in a car accident. She admitted with right acetabular and left rami fractures (images attached). Also transverse fracture of the right distal femur. Seeking your advice regarding the acetabular fracture. THX!

Best regards,
