Özet

Acetabular fracture-dislocations usually occur as a result of high velocity trauma, Such fractures following electroconvulsive therapy are extremely rare, In this report, two similar cases of acetabular fractures and central fracture-dislocations following ECT are presented, This rare complication could be eliminated easily by using short-acting anaesthetic agents and muscle relaxants.
