Evaluation and Treatment of Blunt Pelvic Trauma.
Trauma is a significant contributor to mortality, especially in the young. Pelvic trauma with pelvic ring fractures may result in associated arterial injury, necessitating endovascular intervention. As a result, interventional radiology plays a critical role in partnering with trauma providers in the care of these patients. Management is determined by the acuity of the patient's clinical status, radiographs, ultrasound, and the results of computed tomography imaging when available. Numerous embolic agents are available for treatment of arterial hemorrhage.
