Abstract BACKGROUND: The treatment of acetabular fractures is complex and requires specialized equipment. However, all currently available instruments have some disadvantages. A new reduction clamp that can firmly enable reduction and not hinder subsequent fixation procedures for some special fracture types is needed. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this study, we introduce a new acetabular clamp and its preliminary clinical application in three T-shaped acetabular fractures. RESULTS: This new clamp can successfully pull the posterior column back to the anterior column and firmly maintain the reduction. This clamp's aiming plate can facilitate the insertion of long lag screws. The clamp is also easy to assemble and use. CONCLUSION: This reduction clamp is a useful instrument that can facilitate open reduction and internal fixation of acetabular fractures.
