Abstract

Orthopedic surgeons have recently recognized the benefits of using percutaneous fixation to treat pelvic-ring disruption. Surgical removal of pelvic internal fixation is performed in an anatomically "crowded" area, with no direct vision, and harbors its own risks. Computerized fluoroscopic navigation, which makes implant location easier and reduces radiation exposure, operative time, and soft-tissue damage, can make this procedure short and relatively safe.
