Abstract

A complete peripartum pubic symphysis separation is a rare but severe complication of natural birth. Its incidence is estimated to be 0.03–3 ‰. Minor partial separations with a small width can be treated with a pelvic binder. Separations with major dehiscence should be treated by surgical reduction and fixation. This article presents the case of a 30-year-old woman who suffered a complete rupture of the pubic symphysis during the birth of her second child. Radiographic dehiscence was 39 mm. The operative treatment was carried out using a supra-acetabular external fixator for 12 weeks with a good result.
