Pelvic ring fractures have increased in incidence and operative fixation over the past several decades.

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.
