Traumatic Hemipelvectomy with a Contralateral Unstable Pelvis and Acetabular Fracture: A Case Report and Review of the Literature



Traumatic Hemipelvectomy with a Contralateral Unstable Pelvis and Acetabular Fracture: A Case Report and Review of the Literature



Jbjs Case Connector 7(3): E52



A traumatic hemipelvectomy (THP) is a rare life-threatening injury, with limited reports in the civilian population. We present the case of a patient who sustained a massive pelvic injury with an incomplete unilateral THP, a contralateral unstable pelvis, and a fracture of the acetabulum. With advancements in resuscitative techniques, carefully timed and planned surgical interventions, and a coordinated multidisciplinary approach, a greater number of patients may be able to survive a massive pelvic injury.
