An overlapping pubic dislocation treated by closed reduction: Case report and review of the literature

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

An overlapping dislocation of the symphysis pubis is a rare injury caused by either side-to-side compression or hyperextension. We hereby describe a case of such injury sustained during parachuting and reduced by closed means. This case appears to be the first described in the literature where no damage to the urogenital tract was observed. The patient is asymptomatic 1 year later.
