Abstract

Pelvic fractures often are associated with concomitant injuries. In general, the more severe the pelvic fracture, the more likely other, potentially life-threatening injuries exist. We present a case of a typical type 1 lateral compression pelvic fracture with the less common associated injury of abdominal wall muscle disruption and large-bowel herniation.
