The classification of pelvic fractures proposed by Isler and Ganz was applied to 152 patients. On the basis of this experience, the following conclusion were drawn. 1. It is possible to classify all pelvic ring injuries by dividing them in lesions of the anterior and of the posterior ring segment. 2. The classification requires a thorough examination; often a CT scan is needed. The original classification of 9 out of 18 patients based on X-ray morphology had to be revised after CT examination. 3. Once the pelvic injury is definitely classified the mode of therapy is determined as well.
