The aim of this study was to evaluate the reliability of open reduction and minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) for anterior ring fracture combined with pubic symphysis separation and to explore the operative techniques and therapeutic efficacy.
Material and Methods: We used minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) to treat anterior ring fracture combined with pubic symphysis separation.
Results: During postoperative follow-up, all patients recovered well, with no fat liquefaction, infection, femoral nerve or iliac blood vessels injury, deep vein thrombosis, heterotopic ossification, or any and other complications.
Conclusions: The MIS or MIPPO for anterior ring fracture combined with pubic symphysis separation has the advantages of short operation time and less blood loss. This clinical operation is safe and feasible, with therapeutic efficacy.
