Abstract

We report on 4 patients, aged 24-51 years, with untreated pelvic ring fractures. The chief complaints were gait disturbances and pain in the buttocks and lower limb. The period between the initial injury and the surgical treatment ranged from 2.5 months to 3 years. Palsy was not improved, but pain and gait ability was improved in all patients.
