Pelvic Pathology

Playlist contributed by: Dr Jonathan Robert Wylie

Pelvic checklist and predominantly trauma cases.

These cases are a few examples of common pelvic injuries/patterns of pelvic injury and complement the "Pelvis" chapter of "Accident & Emergency Radiology: A survival guide".

Points to remember:

- The pelvis comprises 3 bony rings: the main pelvic ring and the two smaller rings formed by the pubic and ischial bones.

- A double break in the MAIN pelvic ring is an unstable injury (SI joint disuption or pubic symphysis diastasis are considered "breaks").

- Acetabular and sacral fractures are easily overlooked.

- Beware overcalling unfused synchondroses in paediatric patients or unfused ossification centres ( eg. os acetabuli).
