Abstract

BACKGROUND: Although pediatric pelvis fractures are relatively uncommon, long-term consequences and associated life-treating injuries often have a substantial impact for the rest of a child's life. The prognosis of pediatric pelvic fractures is better than that of the adults because of their greater elasticity, healing capacity and re-modelling. Fractures through the physis may lead to growth disturbance and/or acetabular dysplasia. Non-union is rare and mal-union is usually well-tolerated. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the results of a single trauma center and review the literature approach to pediatric pelvic fractures.
