Fifty-one male patients with prior pelvic fracture completed a Brief Sexual Function Inventory questionnaire (BSFI) 2 years postinjury. Responses were compared to those of 53 men with ankle fractures. Patients with pelvic fracture scored significantly worse than patients with ankle fracture. Patients with pelvic fracture scored poorly on sex drive, erection, ejaculation, and satisfaction with sex life. Older patients had significantly worse sex function scores than younger patients.

Male sexual dysfunction after pelvic fracture.
It is emphasized that major pelvic trauma may impair sexual function in men and the results demonstrate an objective measurement of ED by the IIEF as well as an extended spectrum of complaints.
Quality of Life and Sexual Function After Traumatic Pelvic Fracture
All domains of female and male sexual function were significantly decreased at a minimum of a year after pelvic fracture andquality of life was significantly decreased in this group with sexual dysfunction shown to be an independent risk factor for decreased quality of life after injury.
Erectile Dysfunction after Conservative Treatment of Sacral Fractures in Males without Injury to the Urinary System.
The frequency of ED was higher in Denis type 2 sacrum fractures, and sexual function should be questioned in the follow-up, especially in those fracture types.
High Rates of Sexual and Urinary Dysfunction After Surgically Treated Displaced Pelvic Ring Injuries
The data suggest new sexual and urinary dysfunction occur at relatively high rates after pelvic fracture in patients with or without GUI, and recommend early assessment and referral for specialist treatment.
Sexual function impairment after high energy pelvic fractures: evidence today.
Outcome in Pelvic Ring Fractures
Health-related quality of life and life satisfaction after pelvic ring fractures caused by high-energy trauma is substantially lower when compared to a reference population.
Sexual Dysfunction Following Traumatic Pelvic Fracture.
Men's experiences with sexual dysfunction after pelvic trauma can be heavily influenced by their interactions with healthcare providers and the value that is placed on sexual health as a component of survivorship.
Effects of the lower extremity external fixators on the sexual life of males.
EF in the cruris may impair sexual functions in males and might be associated with physical, psychological, and social limitations caused by EF, which was higher in male patients who were treated with EF.
Erectile function after posterior urethroplasty for pelvic fracture‐urethral distraction defect injuries
To determine the specific effect of pelvic fracture‐urethral distraction defect (PFUDD) injuries on erectile function (EF) in men after pelvic fractures, and to compare EF to that found in other


Effect of trauma and pelvic fracture on female genitourinary, sexual, and reproductive function.
It was found that pelvic trauma negatively affected the genitourinary and reproductive function of female patients and the increased rate of cesarean section in women after pelvic trauma may be multifactorial in origin and warrants further investigation.
Pelvic ring injuries. A long term functional outcome study.
Variations by Tile class among the Short Form-36 survey, Iowa pelvic score, or questionnaire result's were not seen, raising questions whether reduction of pelvic ring injuries can alter patient long term functional outcomes.
Impotence following pelvic fracture.
A group of 42 men with pelvic fractures as the result of motor vehicle accidents were evaluated for impotence 48 hours after injury; followup of available patients to 20 months reflects persistent impotences in those who experienced vasculogenic trauma.
Erectile dysfunction in relation to traumatic pelvic injuries or pelvic fractures
A comprehensive interdisciplinary evaluation of patients with pelvic fractures shows autonomic neurogenic lesions to be the predominant cause for post-traumatic ED.

A system for assessment of function after major pelvic injuries is proposed, developed from a five-year prospective study of 60 patients, which allows comparison between early and late results and also between various methods of treatment.
Functional outcome of internal fixation for pelvic ring fractures.
Patients treated with combined anterior and posterior internal fixation scored significantly better on both the Majeed score and on the categories physical functioning, pain, general health and social functioning compared with patients with similar fractures treated with a combination of anterior internal fixation with external fixation.
Voiding and sexual dysfunctions after pelvic fracture urethral injuries treated with either initial cystostomy and delayed urethroplasty or immediate primary urethral realignment.
Sexual and voiding dysfunction after pelvic fracture posterior urethral injury seem to be the result of the injury itself, not of the immediate treatment modalities.
