The therapeutic effect of damage-control orthopaedics on basketball players with unstable pelvic fractures combined with multiple limb fracture

Objective: This study aims to explore the clinical value of damage-control orthopaedics in treatment of unstable pelvic fracture complicated with multiple limb fracture of basketball players.

Methods: To further evaluate the clinical effect of damage-control orthopaedics in treatment of unstable pelvic fracture complicated with multiple limb fracture, the 1,200 patients with unstable pelvic fracture and multiple limb fracture admitted in a hospital from March 2010 to March 2016 were randomly sampled as research objects, to be divided into reference group (600 cases) and experimental group (600 cases) by lot. The reference group were treated with routine treatment, while the experimental group were treated with damage-control orthopaedics. The clinical therapeutic effect and complication rate were compared between the two groups.

Results: According to the study results, the effective rate was 95% in the experimental group and 73% in the reference group. The former had a significant advantage compared with the latter, and the experimental group had significantly less complications than the reference group. Comparison between groups meets P<0.05, statistically significant.

Conclusion: Damage-control orthopaedics for patients with unstable pelvic fracture complicated with multiple limb fracture enjoys significant clinical effect, with effective rate greatly improved and complications reduced. Thus, it is recommended to be popularized in clinical practice.
