Journal Article (Journal Article)

CASE: We present a case of a patient who sustained overlapping dislocation of the pubic symphysis (ODPS), which required an open reduction as well as anterior and posterior pelvic ring fixation. CONCLUSION: This case report is a valuable addition to the current literature on ODPS because we believe it to be the first report describing a patient who required both anterior and posterior fixation because of pelvic instability.
