4Anterior column: reduction

Use of a large symmetric reduction forceps (“King Tong”)

Additionally, or as an alternative, apply a large symmetric “King Tong” clamp around the anterior column and the fixed portion of the iliac wing to obtain correct rotation of the iliac wing and to restore the iliac fossa concavity.

Excessive internal rotation will open the fracture on the opposite side.
