Abstract

We were not able to confirm 2.5 cm of symphysis pubis diastasis as a valid differentiation point between anteroposterior compression I and II injuries because significant morphologic variation seems to exist. Our data support that anterior sacroiliac ligament disruption is likely for displacement greater than 4.5 cm and unlikely for values less than 1.8 cm. Our study suggests that sacrospinous and sacrotuberous ligaments might not rupture at the same time as the anterior sacroiliac ligament.
