BOAST - The Management of Patients with Pelvic Fractures

01 Jan 2018


Pelvic fractures must be managed within a trauma system with defined referral pathways.  They can be associated with significant haemorrhage, urological injury and other injuries. Specialist units, based at Major Trauma Centres, should have the ability to provide multidisciplinary care for these patients as well as specialist orthogeriatric care for those sustaining fragility fractures.
