Pelvic fracture in pregnancy: factors influencing maternal and fetal outcomes

Authors: Hassan B. Maghfuri, Hind M. Alraeh.

ABSTRACT

The pelvis is a structure of the lower extremity that stabilizes the body. Pelvic fractures are common in mechanized nations and young people. They are rare among pregnant women, so they are discussed very less in scientific literature. The present study aimed to provide an overview of pelvic fractures during pregnancy and factors affecting maternal and fetal outcomes. This study has included all the studies that have focused on pelvic fractures during pregnancy and factors affecting maternal and fetal outcomes. A filtration procedure was used to remove duplicates and irrelevant publications. The online databases such as PubMed, ResearchGate, and Google Scholar were used to carry out a literature search for publications, without any date or language restrictions. We used a combination of relevant search terms like “pelvic fractures, outcomes, prevalence, pregnancy, and management”. We independently identified publications and systematically screened titles, abstracts, and full texts of collected publications. Among 23 articles which were initially selected based on the title and abstract, few articles were excluded as the targeted population was not of Saudi Arabian ethnicity. Finally, 13 articles were selected and included in the review. The pelvic fracture outcomes included mode of delivery, the mother’s mortality rate, and the fetus. Mode of delivery was affected by training and experience of the obstetrician, previous results, and whether pelvic disproportion exists. On the contrary, the mortality of the mother and the fetus were affected by the severity and mechanism of injury.
