Abstract

Stabilization of posterior pelvic ring injuries is increasingly performed using percutaneously placed iliosacral and transiliac-transsacral screws. Understanding the unique and specific anatomical variations present in each patient is paramount. Multiple methods of evaluating potential osseous fixation pathways for screw placement exist, but many require specific imaging protocols, specialized software, or modification of data. Not all surgeons and institutions have access to these options for a variety of reasons. A simple technique to preoperatively plan for safe transiliac-transsacral screws is proposed.
