symphysis pubis separation

Karl Entenmann

Hi all,
I just got a call from a physician who has a woman 2 days post partum who has a 1 inch separation of the symphysis pubis.  In the past I’ve used a sacroilliac belt but the doc says this probably will require internal fixation but wants to use a brace or traction to reduce it first. 
Have any of you seen this before and do you have any suggestions?
