Abstract

Pelvic ring fractures have increased in incidence and operative fixation over the past several decades. These are dynamic injuries but decisions on operative management are still often made on the basis of static imaging. Expert opinion varies greatly on which injuries require fixation and how much fixation. Examination under anaesthesia has been shown to guide management of pelvic injuries by more accurately assessing levels of instability.
