In addition, the periosteum is metabolically. Pediatric pelvic fractures are uncommon injuries that are typically associated with high-energy trauma. Patients with pelvic ring injuries require a thorough trauma evaluation given the potential for concomitant injuries of the brain, abdominal viscera and genitourinary system.

The tendons and ligaments in pediatric patients are proportionally much stronger than the bones, leading to an increased incidence of avulsion type fractures.

Overall, pelvic fractures are associated with an increased risk of death among trauma patients. An Australian study of pelvic ring fractures demonstrated an incidence of 23 perpersons per year, while a British study found the incidence of acetabular fractures to be 3 perpersons per year.Greenstick fractures can also occur in the face, chest, scapula and virtually every bone in the body, but with much less frequency than long bones.
