Skip Fusion With Sacral-Alar-Iliac Screw Fixation for Pelvic Ring and Lumbar Fractures: A Case Report – Lumbar Fusion

Day Case Lumbar Fusion Surgery

The article discusses a case where skip fusion with sacral-alar-iliac screw fixation was used as a minimally invasive procedure to treat a patient with pelvic ring and lumbar fractures. Pelvic ring fractures are often caused by high-energy trauma and can result in significant blood loss and other injuries. When there is a concurrent lumbar fracture, the range of motion after surgery can be limited due to increased fusion range. The authors report that the skip fusion technique was effective in this case and may offer a less invasive treatment option for these types of fractures
