Guide wire insertion for percutaneous LC2 screws in acetabular and pelvic ring fixation using a transpedicular working cannula


Scherer, Julian; Guy, Pierre; Lefaivre, Kelly A; Pape, Hans-Christoph; Werner, Clément M L; Osterhoff, Georg (2017). Guide wire insertion for percutaneous LC2 screws in acetabular and pelvic ring fixation using a transpedicular working cannula. Injury, 48(10):2360-2364.

Abstract

Closed reduction and percutaneous screw fixation (CRIF) of iliac crescent fractures and fractures of the anterior column of the acetabulum has become an established method in the treatment of these injuries. After reduction, safe insertion of a guide wire is a key step during this procedure. We present a technique that can facilitate introducing the guide wire under fluoroscopic guidance and allow for decreased radiation exposure.
