Description The Pelvic C-Clamp is an emergency stablization instrument for unstable injuries and fractures of the pelvic ring. Unstable pelvic ring fractures can be associated with massive blood loss that can cause terminal shock. The Pelvic C-Clamp allows rapid reduction and stabilization of these unstable pelvic ring fractures. It is therefore an invaluable tool for gaining control of the shock reaction, while neither delaying nor hindering subsequent...

0x6.000.899_AC.qxp:0x6.000.899_AC 10.12.2008 8:51 Uhr Seite 3 In cases of sacral fractures or disruptions of the sacroiliac joint, there is often concomitant blood loss from the fracture surface and from the veins of the presacral plexus. The use of the Pelvic C-Clamp in those settings can save lives. Direct transverse compression of the sacroiliac joint controls bleeding from the fracture surfaces and from the presacral plexus. With the Pelvic C-Clamp applied, there is still adequate access for a laporotomy or tamponade. Inner rail Outer rail Upper arm Lower arm Threaded tube Cannulated nail...

0x6.000.899_AC.qxp:0x6.000.899_AC 10.12.2008 8:51 Uhr Indications The Pelvic C-Clamp is intended for emergency stabilization of sacrum fractures or disruptions of the sacroiliac joint with associated circulatory instability. Caution: Avoid use where: – Fractures of the ilium are present as there is risk of pin perforation through the fracture line – There are comminuted sacral fractures with the risk of compression of the sacral nerve plexus Note: In life threatening situations hemorrhage control takes priority over the potential risk of nerve root compression. 4 Synthes Pelvic C-Clamp Technique...

The bottom layer of the Vario Case houses the Pelvic C-Clamp and the optional pliers. The upper layer houses the cannulated nails in two lengths and the remaining instruments. The complete sterile Pelvic C-Clamp set should be kept ready for use in the resuscitation room. Depending on the type of injury, the orientation...

(a) Note: Hold upper and lower arms with both hands and ensure that the lower arm is locked when fully extended. (a) Extend the upper bars by depressing the buttons on the upper rails while simultaneously pulling on the side arms. (b) Note: Maximal extension of the Pelvic C-Clamp is advantageous for easy and safe positioning. (b) With a light twist, place the cannulated nails of preferred...

If orientation is difficult, use an image intensifier. The surface reference point of the outer side of the ilium changes at the level of the sacroiliac joints. In emergency situations, the resulting “fossa”...

After both nails have been seated properly the arm can be placed over the rail again and compression can be achieved as described below. When both nails are correctly seated, manually compress the upper side arms (a) and ensure final fixation by tightening the threaded tubes with the Ratchet Wrench (b). The Kirschner wire must be cut off with the wire cutter or removed. If desired, place a protective cap on each end of the two...
