Abstract

The Hoffmann device still has a certain role in the treatment of pelvic fractures. It aids in early resuscitation and stabilization of the patients for control of hemorrhage. Daily nursing care is facilitated. It also helps in relief of pain and early mobilization of patients. However, the Hoffmann device still has disadvantages. It cannot stabilize ade-quately complicated posterior arch fracture. Adjuvant internal fixation sometimes may be needed to achieve better reduction.
Pennal and Tile's classification (A-P compression. Lateral compres-sionand vertical shear fractures) helps in clinical assessment and radiologic evaluation of pelvic fractures. Subgroupings by Bucholz’s A-P compression (Type I , II and III) and Young’s lateral compression (Type I , II and III) can make us comprehend trauma severity and the force vectors more objectively helpful in selecting cases which will achieve better reduction and maintenance with the Hoffmann device.
