In addition elderly patients may have a large belly with thin proximal thighs and hence the exposure may vary signiﬁcantly. The pelvic AP view is generally considered sensitive for the anteroinferior part of the pelvis, reasonable in the region of the acetabulum and Ilium and poor in the region of the posterior ring. Pelvic centring also needs to be assessed. This can be done by aligning the symphysis with the sacrum and checking for the symmetry of the obturator foramina. The AP view of the pelvis gives important information about the initial assessment of the traumatised patient so as to assess for other more signiﬁcant underlying injuries.
Complications include neurovascular injury – including radial nerve damage – which is found in up to 17% of fractures involving the humeral shaft. ABCs systematic assessment Alignment • • • • • GHJ space should be even and no greater than 6 mm On the axial view the GHJ appears as a ‘golf ball on a tee’ On the ‘Y’ view the humeral head should be centred over the junction of the Y shape ACJ alignment – the inferior margins of the acromion and clavicle should be level Check for widening of the ACJ and coracoclavicular distance Check for a horizontal line indicating lipohaemarthrosis of the glenohumeral joint.
18) is a fracture of the ulna, often at the proximal or mid shaft with disruption of the radiocapitellar joint and dislocation of the radial head at the elbow. The radial head typically dislocates anteriorly. Both of these injuries disrupt (a) • • Positive anterior or posterior fat pads – search for a fracture No visible fracture but both fat pads displaced. In adults – fracture of the radial head. 16 (a),(b) Fracture-dislocation of the capitellum.
