Abstract

Posterior pelvic ring injuries with dissociation of the sacroiliac joint can be a therapeutic challenge. Open procedures for reduction have a significant risk for wound complications although inadequate reductions using percutaneous methods can have poor long-term outcomes. Several indirect reduction methods have been previously described for closed reduction of the sacroiliac joint. We present our technique for the intraoperative use of the pelvic c-clamp as a reduction aid for the posterior pelvis in conjunction with percutaneous iliosacral screw fixation. This technique has been used routinely in our patients who sustain injuries to the sacroiliac joint and are candidates for closed reduction and percutaneous fixation. Our objective is to provide orthopedic surgeons an additional means by which to reduce sacroiliac disruptions by percutaneous means.
