Abstract

External fixation of pelvic fracture seems to work consistently well for anterior compression and lateral compression injuries in which the majority of the posterior soft tissue structures remain intact. However, with injuries which are associated with a vertical shearing displacement of the sacroiliac joint or the ilium, external fixation has not been adequate. Some authors have reported limited success in treating vertical shear injuries with the external fixation frame. This paper discusses an experimental study of the title subject, and the study results.
