Dear list members,
A 19 year old woman fell/jumped from the third floor.
Taken to OR for ex fix pelvis and laparotomy for intraabdominal bleeding. Ankle debrided and ex fix. Wrist splinted with plaster. In stable condition to ICU. Return to surgical ward on day 4.
Attached some of the X-rays and CT pictures. Apologizes for the quality of the imaging. What are your recommendations for treatment of the pelvic/acetabular and ankle injury?
