About this product

Division: Trauma
Category: External Fixation

The Pelvic C-Clamp is an emergency stabilization 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 a valuable tool for gaining control of the shock reaction, without delaying subsequent diagnosis and therapy.

The pelvic C-clamp does not control arterial bleeding.  However by mechanical stabilization alone, or enhanced by pelvic packing, concomitant venous bleeding can be managed, to gain time for definitive hemorrhage or arterial embolization control. 

The pelvic C-clamp is composed of rails and arms with a locking mechanism, allowing linear movement of the arms.  The pelvic C-clamp should always be used in combination with the system's cannulated nails.
