Anterior versus posterior provisional fixation in the unstable pelvis. A biomechanical comparison.


Pelvic ring injuries with associated hemorrhage often require provisional fixation to achieve tamponade. Biomechanics information regarding these provisional fixators is unknown. Six fresh-frozen cadaveric pelvic specimens were physiologically loaded, first intact and then after each of the following modifications: disrupted--unilateral superior and… (More)
