Multiple pelvic ring fracture (more than 2 fracture sites) were seen in 23 (17.8%) cases (Table 1).

Patients were monitored for intraprocedural and postprocedural complications like: hemorrhage, stomal infection, injury to adjacent structures, arrhythmias, transient hypoxemia, transient hypotension, paratracheal insertion, pneumothorax, sub-cutaneous emphysema, loss of airway, accidental decannulation, tracheal ring fracture and new lung infiltrate or atelectasis.

Conservative treatment of EBR can fail for various reasons, such as dysfunction of the catheter, concomitant vaginal/rectal injuries or pelvic ring fracture which require internal fixation.[sup.6,8] In addition, blood clot formation might result in urinary catheter occlusion and thus inadequate drainage.
ELA 2203 is underlain largely by andesitic volcanic rocks of the ancestral Pliocene Crater Mountain stratovolcano which grew to an immense size before undergoing caldron collapse on a ring fracture system 20 kilometres in diameter, followed by a long period of deep erosion which continued until recent renewed andesitic - dacitic volcanic activity formed a string of smaller parasite cones within and east of the northeast quadrant of the collapse structure.
NSK has developed TL (Tough and Long Life) bearing material, to overcome the problem of damage due to inner ring fracture encountered on spherical roller bearings in the dryer sections of papermaking machines.
the first part of this paper presents results from a series of C ring fracture tests (9) to generate a time-dependent [K.sub.IC] curve, and also to determine the empirical slow crack growth parameters in Eq 3.
Spinopelvic fixation is associated with a particularly high complication rate in pelvic ring fracture treatment [6,20], and posterior soft tissue complications are associated with poorer outcomes.
The inclusion criteria were those with pelvic ring fracture without need for reduction who are over 65 years of age and female with pain killer resistance.
