Useful Intraoperative Technique for Percutaneous Stabilization of Bilateral Posterior Pelvic Ring Injuries

Treating patients with bilateral posterior pelvic ring injuries can be challenging. Placement of transiliac-transsacral style screws in available S1 or S2 osseous fixation pathways is becoming an increasingly common fixation method for these unstable injuries. We propose a percutaneous technique that sequences reduction and stabilization of 1 hemipelvis with at least 1 transiliac-transsacral screw and then uses the existing transiliac-transsacral screw and accompanying guide wires to assist in temporary stabilization and definitive fixation of the second hemipelvis.
