Abstract

Traumatic hemipelvectomy is a severe, life-threatening injury, mainly occurring due to machinery injury or traffic accident. Few cases have been published in the literature. Treatment requires a rapid, multidisciplinary team approach which will result in the saving of the patient's life. We present the outcome of a male patient with traumatic hemipelvectomy.
