Traumatic pelvic fractures are major bony injuries associated with long-term morbidity. We analysed the outcomes of operative repair of traumatic pelvic fractures secondary to road traffic accidents in our centre over a 11-years period. Majority of cases were B1 followed by C1 AO fracture pattern. Post-operative congruity was obtained in 95.2% of cases with a mean Majeed score of 92.4% at a minimum follow-up of four years. There was no statistically significant difference between the fracture groups and duration of hospital stay. Our results indicate that operative repair of traumatic pelvic fractures is associated with excellent outcome.
