Abstract

The vast majority of pelvic fractures in geriatric patients are classified as stable injuries. The current treatment strategies of these fractures involve pain management and mobilization. Pain-related immobility may pose a serious hazard to patients with severe preexisting comorbidities. There is paucity of literature on the outcome and mortality after osteoporotic pelvic fractures in the elderly. This review aims to provide an overview of epidemiology, injury mechanism, fracture patterns, management and outcome after osteoporotic pelvic fractures.
