How Are Iliac Fractures Treated?
Discussion Avulsion fractures of the pelvis are more commonly seen in adults and teenage athletes. Currently they are more common in male athletes but with the increased number of females in sports, more are also being seen in females. Soccer and track and field are common sports where these injuries occur. The injuries are felt to be caused by a repetitive traction on the apophysis or more commonly due to a ‘sudden, forceful, or unbalanced contraction of an attached musculotendinous unit while engaged in a sporting event…. Skeletal maturity has a direct effect on the incidence of the injury.” They can o...
