Abstract

Introduction: Osteosynthesis of anterior pubic ramus fractures can be challenging, especially in poor bone quality. The aim of the present study was to compare plate and retrograde endomedullary screw fixation of the superior pubic ramus with low bone mineral density (BMD). Materials and methods: Twelve human cadaveric hemi-pelvises were analyzed in a matched pair study design. BMD of the ...
