Injury to the acetabular growth plate is rare. Accordingly, data on the incidence in the literature are controverse. Other difficulties include the clear definition of a pediatric acetabular injury. The modified classification according to Salter-Harris described by Bucholz is used in immature patients. The majority of these injuries can be treated conservatively. In severely displaced injuries or in the presence of intra-articular pathologies open procedures are recommended. The main long-term complication is the development of posttraumatic acetabular dysplasia which should be early detected by regular check-ups until the completion of growth. Overall, the long-term results are satisfactory.
