Sacral fractures are generally accompanied by pelvic ring fractures. They rarely develop in an isolated form. Sacroiliac dislocation without sacral fracture is extremely rare. We report a case with a sacroiliac dislocation without sacral fracture, which was treated surgically. Lumbopelvic stabilization was applied using iliac wing plates. The case was evaluated according to his clinical condition and visual analogue score (VAS), American Spinal Injury Association (ASIA) and Oswestry scales. Considering the role of the sacrum, which transmits the load of the entire spine to the pelvis, meticulous care must be given to ensure the mechanic stability of the spine when evaluating patients with sacral and pelvic fractures...

Long-duration exposure to the space environment causes physical adaptations that are deleterious to optimal functioning on Earth. Post-mission rehabilitation traditionally concentrates on regaining general muscle strength, neuromuscular control, and lumbo-pelvic stability. A particular problem is muscle imbalance caused by the hypertrophy of the flexor and atrophy of the extensor and local lumbo-pelvic muscles, increasing the risk of post-mission injury. A method currently used in European human spaceflight to aid post-mission recovery involves a motor control approach, focusing initially on teaching voluntary contraction of specific lumbo-pelvic muscles and optimizing spinal position, progressing to functional retraining in weight bearing positions...

The runner who presents with pain in the hip and pelvis, all too often is approached from a one-joint or soft tissue injury concept. Since most injuries to this region are related to overuse and, in particular, overload injury, a biomechanical approach to identify significant muscle imbalances and joint dysfunctions must be sought. In addition, their relationship as predisposing factors to soft tissue injury will be emphasized in this article. A thorough understanding of the relationship between the lumbar spine, pelvis, hip and thigh, and, in particular, dysfunctions and imbalances in the lumbo-pelvic movements, are the most essential...

The "sportsman's hernia" commonly presents as a painful groin in those sports that involve kicking and twisting movements while running, particularly in rugby, football, soccer, and ice hockey players. Moreover, sportsman's hernia can be encountered even in normally physically active people. The pain experienced is recognized at the common point of origin of the rectus abdominis muscle and the adductor longus tendon on the pubic bone and the insertion of the inguinal ligament on the pubic bone. It is accepted that this chronic pain caused by abdominal wall weakness or injury occurs without a palpable hernia...

In summary, LBP is a common problem for the young adult athlete, with discogenic pain being the most common of all etiologies. Although rare, more serious etiologies such as tumor or infection should be included in the differential diagnosis until effectively ruled out. Regardless of the cause, nonoperative and conservative strategies should be the cornerstone of treatment, owing to the favorable natural history of most LBP etiologies. Short-term non-narcotic medications are helpful, and avoidance of bed rest is critical for the athletic population...

Hamstring strain injuries (HSIs) are common in a number of sports and incidence rates have not declined in recent times. Additionally, the high rate of recurrent injuries suggests that our current understanding of HSI and re-injury risk is incomplete. Whilst the multifactoral nature of HSIs is agreed upon by many, often individual risk factors and/or causes of injury are examined in isolation. This review aims to bring together the causes, risk factors and interventions associated with HSIs to better understand why HSIs are so prevalent...

Endometriosis is one of the most frequent benign gynecological diseases that affect women. Little is known about the pathogenesis and etiology of endometriosis, despite the numerous studies performed in this field. Although endometriosis is a benign disease, the endometrial tissue, after attachment to the peritoneum, has the ability to grow and invade the surrounding tissues. Similar to neoplastic growth, local extracellular proteolysis might take place, and therefore, the fibrinolytic system may be involved...

We analyse our experience in performing the wet colostomy, also called urocolostomy and present seven cases treated at our hospital in which this was used. We present: a) three women, one underwent an urocolostomy as a result of a myelomeningocele with urinary and fecal incontinence, another because of a pelvic malignancy, and the third after developing a post radiotherapy cysto-proctitis; b) four men, one underwent this surgical procedure as a result of a traumatic paraplegia with multiple urinary fistulae and neurogenic bladder, the other three were secondary to pelvic malignancies (two bladder and one sigmoid malignacies)...

BACKGROUND: The study was concerned with the secondary functional compromise persons with long-term paraplegia contend with, that has been shown to be associated with wheelchair use. Of particular interest was the relationship between the level of thoracic spinal cord injury (SCI) and factors predisposing to rotator cuff disorders (RCD), one of the most common upper extremity musculoskeletal complications linked with long-term SCI. Disorders of these peri-articular structures have previously been associated with impaired trunk postural control and abnormal muscle strength ratios in both able-bodied groups and in paraplegic athletes...

Despite improvements in trauma care and thromboembolism prophylaxis over the past 50 years, deep venous thrombosis (DVT) remains a source of morbidity and mortality in the injured patient. Pulmonary embolism may complicate the course of up to 6% of such patients, although the morbidity associated with late development of the postthrombotic syndrome remains poorly defined and perhaps underemphasized. Prolonged immobilization and venous injury contribute to the risk of venous thrombosis, and accumulating evidence suggests underlying imbalances between activated coagulation and fibrinolysis...

BACKGROUND: Gastrointestinal toxicity is frequently observed during radiotherapy of malignancies in the abdomen and pelvis. The proposed pathophysiology of radiation enteritis is complex and a variety of different treatment strategies have been suggested for the management of acute radiation-induced diarrhea. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Data are presented from an extensive review of the current literature. RESULTS: Radiation-induced diarrhea results from a variety of different pathophysiological mechanisms including malabsorption of bile salts and lactose, imbalances in local bacterial flora and changes in the intestinal patterns of motility...

The objective of this study was to evaluate and compare the derangement of body homeostatis and the inflammatory response after different types of traumatological operations in patients with multiple injuries. These were determined in a total of 60 operations. The procedures comprised osteosynthesis of the femur (n = 28), the pelvic girdle (n = 11) the spine (n = 8), and facial and basal skull reconstructions (n = 13). Specific and unspecific parameters of the inflammatory response were determined on the morning of the operation, immediately after the procedure, every 6 h on the 1st day and 48 h after the end of surgery...

The clinical course of 14 patients undergoing jejunal conduit urinary diversion between 1971 and 1985 is reviewed. Indications for use of jejunum rather than ileum or colon for diversion included radiation changes of the ileum, concurrent colonic neoplasms or injury, concerns about collateral blood supply of the colon and multiple adhesions. There were 2 operative deaths. Followup in the remaining 12 patients was 1 to 116 months (mean 34 months). All of the patients had satisfactory postoperative renal function...

It has been postulated that loss of voluntary trunk stability, combined with the posture imposed by the configuration of the wheelchair seat, biomechanically necessitates that a person with diminished trunk control assume an abnormal sitting posture. This posture is characterized by a long, "C"-shaped kyphotic thoracolumbar spine, an extended cervical spine, a flattened lumbar spine, and a posteriorly tilted pelvis. If lateral trunk deformities are present, trunk imbalance and pelvic deformities in the coronal (frontal) plane can exist...

Ileum was used as a ureteral replacement in 12 patients, 7 of whom had solitary kidneys. The conditions that necessitated an operation included renal pelvic and ureteral complications of calculi, a variety of traumatic ureteral injuries, retroperitoneal fibrosis and ureteral neoplasms. Renal function has been well preserved and electrolyte imbalance has been minimal.
