CHAPTER 5 Pelvic Trauma Madeleine Sampson and Gavin Bowyer Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust, Southampton, Hampshire, UK OVER VIEW • Pelvic injury involves bony and ligament disruption and is a marker of serious trauma, frequently associated with injury to the head, spine and intra-abdominal organs • Features on the plain anteroposterior radiograph of the pelvis allow accurate assessment of direction of force and severity of trauma • Classification of pelvic fractures depends on stability and direction of force, and knowledge of these factors predicts injury patterns, resuscitation requirements and prognosis • Unstable injuries (involving at least two areas of the pelvic ring, either bone or soft tissue) should be investigated with computed tomography • Haemorrhage is the most serious early life-threatening complication.

King and David C. Wherry Published 2010 by Blackwell Publishing 24 trauma (FAST) scanning can be performed rapidly and concurrently with other procedures in the resuscitation room to look for free intraperitoneal or intrathoracic fluid, and can triage a haemodynamically unstable patient to surgery. However, it is insufficiently sensitive to exclude solid organ, mesenteric or retroperitoneal injury. The mainstay of imaging following abdominal trauma is multidetector computed tomography (MDCT). All haemodynamically stable patients with evidence of abdominal trauma (including a positive FAST scan), and all adult polytrauma patients in whom the abdomen cannot be satisfactorily cleared clinically, should have CT.
