Anterior Pelvic Reduction and Fixation Using a Subcutaneous Internal Fixator

The authors present a technique of a subcutaneous anterior pelvic fixator as an alternative method of anterior pelvic ring reduction and stabilization that avoids many of the drawbacks of traditional anterior pelvic external fixation.
