BACKGROUND: Acetabular fracture surgery is directed toward anatomical reduction and stable fixation to allow for the early functional rehabilitation of an injured hip joint. Recent biomechanical investigations have shown the superiority of using an additional screw in the infraacetabular (IA) region, thereby transfixing the separated columns to strengthen the construct by closing the periacetabular fixation frame. However, the inter-individual existence and variance concerning secure IA screw corridors are poorly understood...

Penoscrotal transposition and pendulous-prostatic anastomotic urethroplasty for the treatment of long-segment bulbar and membranous urethral stenosis is rarely reported. This study reports the case of a 43-year-old man with dysuria resulting from pelvic fracture. The patient had a long-term history of multiple urethral reconstructions and presented a long-segment bulbar and membranous urethral stenosis at imaging. Penoscrotal transposition and pendulous-prostatic anastomotic urethroplasty was performed and completed in 170 min (blood loss: 400 ml)...

A 5-year-old female spayed Shetland sheepdog presented for evaluation of bandage sores on the left pelvic limb after a splint was placed to stabilise a digit fracture incurred approximately 2 weeks previously. Multiple areas of necrosis were identified upon bandage removal. After debridement of devitalised tissue, a 4 cm wound on the plantar surface of the metatarsal bones (with exposed bone and tendons) remained. The Papineau technique (which involves removal of infected or necrotic tissue, placement of autogenous cancellous bone graft within a wound, and delayed skin closure) was used to treat this wound...

INTRODUCTION: Patient reported outcome scores may be the preferred method to assess clinical results following acetabular fracture fixation. However, in current acetabular fracture research, there is a scarcity of studies using these scores and long-term follow-up is lacking. The aim of this study is to describe long-term patient reported outcomes following acetabular fracture surgery and to evaluate the association between reduction quality and these outcome measures. METHODS: Patients who received operative fixation for acetabular fractures (1992-2012) were sent questionnaires (short musculoskeletal functional assessment (SMFA) function index and short form (SF)-12), which was returned by 106 patients (22%) (mean age 51 years, 74% male)...

PURPOSE: Treating pelvic fractures remains a challenging task for orthopaedic surgeons. We aimed to evaluate the feasibility, accuracy, and effectiveness of three-dimensional (3D) printing technology and computer-assisted virtual surgery for pre-operative planning in anterior ring fractures of the pelvis. We hypothesized that using 3D printing models would reduce operation time and significantly improve the surgical outcomes of pelvic fracture repair. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the records of 30 patients with pelvic fractures treated by anterior pelvic fixation with locking plates (14 patients, conventional locking plate fixation; 16 patients, pre-operative virtual simulation with 3D, printing-assisted, pre-contoured, locking plate fixation)...

Acetabular fracture usually is related to high-energy traumatic injury or falls from heights and directly caused by seizures without trauma is extremely rare. We report a 71-years-old man who sustained a left acetabular fracture secondary to generalized seizure after clipping of an unruptured aneurysm without trauma and any risk for fracture. The patient had an aneurysm was arising from the bifurcation of the left internal carotid artery and the posterior communicating artery. After the clipping, the patient had three times tonic-clonic seizures for 1 min and resulted in an acetabular fracture...

BACKGROUND: Pelvic radiotherapy is a treatment delivered to an estimated 150,000 to 300,000 people annually across high-income countries. Fractures due to normal stresses on weakened bone due to radiotherapy are termed insufficiency fractures. Pelvic radiotherapy-related interruption of the blood supply to the hip is termed avascular necrosis and is another recognised complication. The reported incidences of insufficiency fractures are 2.7% to 89% and risk of developing avascular necrosis is 0...

Penile injuries in children are usually uncommon and are predominantly associated with pelvic trauma or as postcircumcision injuries. The authors present a rare case of penile dislocation with penile inversion in a 5-year-old child occurring due to blunt pelvic injury. The child presented 3 months after pelvic injury with a suprapubic catheter for urinary diversion and absent penis with only penile skin visible. The presence of dislocated penile body was detected on magnetic resonance imaging, which was subsequently confirmed intraoperatively...
