Abstract

Tilt fracture is the most unusual variant of pelvic lateral compression injury. The major problem was reported to be protrusion of the pubic ramus into the perineum by posterior-inferior displacement of the fragment. Tilt fragment with anterior and inferior displacement has not been reported in English speaking literature to our knowledge. Anterior tilt fragment can cause significant morbidity in terms of vascular injury, pelvic stability and acetabular fracture. (C) 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
