Abstract

Pelvic fractures are uncommon in children, yet they rank second to those of the skull in terms of complications. Thirty-six pediatric patients who sustained pelvic fractures were retrospectively studied, and a recent follow-up examination was conducted in 29 of the patients. All fractures were classified using Torode and Zieg’s system, and the severity of injury was classified using the Modified Injury Severity Score (MISS). Associated injuries occurred in 67% of the patients, with long-term morbidity or mortality in 30%. The high probability of associated injuries must be appreciated, as even minimal bony injury may be associated with life-threatening visceral injuries and morbidity.
