One of the parameters in biology is that there should be a common ancestor. Since science still discusses the ancestral tree of man, one encounters a restriction in the comparison. , development. The close relation between phylogeny and ontology (development from fertilized egg till the death) is such a parameter (think of Haeckel’s phylogenetic law: embryology is a repetition of phylogeny), but its use gives analogous problems [6].

To the unstable ones also belong the Malgaingne vertical shear (indicated above, see Fig. 3): A unilateral fracture of symphysis over the sacrum or ilium, disrupting the sacral ligaments, pelvic floor, and the pelvic soft tissues. It is a ‘‘complete disruption of the posterior sacroiliac complex’’ [14]. Most of these fractures are caused by traffic incidences. An analogous subdivision of acetabular fractures is present, but not discussed here.
