Lecture: Pelvic Fixation Options
This lecture looks at the pelvic fixation in adult deformities. The pelvic deformity indications are discussed in detail and the author describes the reasons why one cannot rely on the sacral fixation alone. The current established techniques, S2 screw, Iliac screws and S2 AI screws, are covered, with a discussion of the pros and cons of each technique and a description of the technique of their application. The complications are also highlighted along with strategies to limit them.
