Abstract

Subcutaneous internal plate fixation for anterior pelvic ring injuries has become more common, but implants require removal, usually by 12 weeks. The purpose of this article is to report a novel, minimally invasive, endoscopic-assisted technique for the removal of subcutaneous anterior pelvic plates safely and atraumatically without violating the underlying fascia.
