What is pelvic fracture?

A pelvic fracture is a break in the pelvis bone. The pelvis is made up of three bones (ileum, ischium and pubic bones) which create a ring of bone in the lower half of the body. The pelvic bone protects the intestines, genitals, bladder, and other nerves and blood vessels.
