1). Lateral compression fractures Between 50 and 70% of pelvic ring fractures occur due to lateral compression and are usually the result of side impact road trafﬁc accidents or crush injuries. These injuries cause an acute reduction in pelvic volume with displacement of fracture fragments towards and sometimes across the midline. 2). Displacement of sharp bone fragments across the pelvis is associated with a high incidence of soft tissue damage, particularly to the bladder and urethra. 5 cm, anterior sacroiliac joint disruption External rotation Rotationally unstable, vertically stable AP compression, type III Type II plus posterior sacroiliac joint disruption External rotation Rotationally unstable, vertically unstable Lateral compression, type I Ipsilateral sacral buckle fracture, ipsilateral horizontal pubic rami fractures (or disruption of symphysis with overlapping pubic bones) Internal rotation Stable Lateral compression, type II Type I plus ipsilateral iliac wing fracture or posterior sacroiliac joint disruption Internal rotation Rotationally unstable, vertically stable Lateral Compression type III Force continues across midline to affect the contralateral hemipelvis.
However, trauma to the abdominal wall itself can be associated with signiﬁcant haematoma formation, particularly if an abdominal wall vessel such as the inferior epigastric artery is injured. Abdominal wall disruption from blunt trauma is rare, but important to recognise due to the high frequency of associated intra-abdominal injuries, particularly of the bowel and mesentery. Rapid deceleration in a vehicle collision can cause the lap portion of a seat belt to slip above the pelvis with the deceleration force imparted on to the abdominal wall muscles.
Note the extensive haemoperitoneum with a large amount of free intraperitoneal ﬂuid. is usually due to a fall from a height, landing on the lower limbs (thereby driving one or both halves of the pelvis upwards), or a road trafﬁc accident with head-on collision and lower limb impaction. 5). If the injury is complete and the anterior plus posterior ligaments are disrupted it is not unknown for the hemipelvis to travel superiorly as far as the liver on the right and the hemidiaphragm on the left, producing soft tissue shearing, perforation and compression injuries to the abdominal organs.
