Figure 3: Screws inserted from the pelvic brim towards the ischium are useful for fixation of posterior column fractures. These screws provide less stability in osteoporotic bone and do not efficiently prevent medial displacement of the quadrilateral plate, a common problem in geriatric acetabular fractures. The buttress plate construct is a good solution in osteoporotic bone as it provides efficient medial support (Peter[20])
