Abstract

The case of a 28-year-old man with bilateral dislocation of the hip, simultaneously one hip anteriorly and the other posteriorly is reported. In this case a very drunk driver without a seatbelt crashed his car. Uncontrolled trauma resulted in two different types of hip dislocation. At the 2-year follow-up he had a serious mobilisation problem with avascular necrosis of one hip.
