Grading the outcome of pelvic fractures

Download PDF


A system for assessment of function after major pelvic injuries is proposed. This numerical system developed from a five-year prospective study of 60 patients. Five factors were assessed and scored: pain, standing, sitting, sexual intercourse and work performance. The total score then gave a clinical grade as excellent, good, fair or poor. The scoring system allows comparison between early and late results and also between various methods of treatment.
