» Spinopelvic fixation is often required to stabilize vertically unstable and complex bilateral sacral fractures. » Biomechanically, triangular osteosynthesis, a combination of spinopelvic fixation along with sacroiliac or transsacral screw fixation, provides the greatest stability in vertically unstable sacral fractures. » Wound-healing and infection rates have been reported as high as 26%, and iatrogenic nerve injuries occur in up to 13% of patients with complex sacral fractures.
