PELVIC STABILIZATION DEVICE

Pelvic Stabilization Device

Pelvic Stabilization Device is used to reduce haemorrhage after a pelvic fracture. It is used in the majority of patients where a ring fracture to the pelvis is suspected by paramedics or physicians.  A pelvic binder is recommended for open book pelvic fractures. It might not be useful in people with lateral compression pelvic fractures.

Pelvic ring injury is associated with a significant risk of mortality (28-50%) and requires urgent management.1 Clinical evidence indicates that pelvic stabilization devices like the Arrow® T-POD™ Device can improve pelvic fracture outcomes1. When seconds count, immediate application of a correctly applied pelvic binder in hemodynamically unstable patients can be lifesaving.1
