Abstract

The patient with instability of the posterior pelvic ring and disruption of the pubic symphysis is a challenging problem for orthopedic surgeons. These represent high-energy injuries and management of these patients requires a multidisciplinary team approach. The orthopedic surgeon's understanding of the injury patterns, their associated injuries, and effective treatment strategies can reduce morbidity and mortality for patients.
