Injury to the sciatic nerve is a well recognised complication of fractures of the pelvic ring and acetabulum, occurring either at the time of injury or as an iatrogenic injury secondary to treatment. The prevalence of sciatic nerve in injury has been reported to be 10–13% after acetabular fracture or fracture-dislocation of the hip.
