The purpose of this study was to assess the stability of a developmental pelvic reconstruction system which extends the concept of triangular osteosynthesis with fixation anterior to the lumbosacral pivot point. An unstable Tile type-C fracture, associated with a sacral transforaminal fracture, was created in synthetic pelves. The new concept was compared with three other constructs, including bilateral iliosacral screws, a tension band plate and a combined plate with screws. The pubic… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Biomechanical comparison of three types of internal fixation in a type C zone II pelvic fracture model.
TLDR
The stability of the Tile C pelvic fracturesfixed with MIAP was similar to that of fractures fixed with IS screws, and MIAP performed better than TBP under vertical load.
Biomechanical analysis of anterior ring fixation of the ramus in type C pelvis fractures
TLDR
The bicortical, fully threaded 6.5-mm pubic ramus screw was the only anterior fixation construct tested that controlled motion at both the anterior and posterior pelvic rings in the absence of posterior fixation.
Biomechanical comparison of three kinds of fixation in fracture-dislocation of the sacroiliac joint.
TLDR
The stability of the sacroiliac joint dislocated fixed with MIAP was similar to that of dislocation fixed with two IS screws, and MIAP performed better than the TBP under vertical load.
Biomechanical comparison of locked versus non-locked symphyseal plating of unstable pelvic ring injuries
TLDR
Locked symphyseal plating systems can provide better stability than non-locked systems for anterior–posterior shear translation and more stability could potentially reduce the risk of failure of the plate or screws.
Biomechanical Comparison of Two Kinds of Internal Fixation in a Type C Zone II Pelvic Fracture Model
TLDR
The stability of Tile C pelvic fractures fixed with MIAP combined with one IS screw was better than that fixed with two IS screws.
A Biomechanical Comparison of Ipsilateral and Contralateral Pedicle Screw Placement for Modified Triangular Osteosynthesis in Unstable Pelvic Fractures
TLDR
Contralateral S1 constructs for modified triangular osteosynthesis were biomechanically equal to ipsilateral constructs in preventing displacement and superior in preventing rotation.
Biomechanical analysis of anterior pelvic ring fractures with intact peripelvic soft tissues: a cadaveric study
TLDR
The clinical practice to treat unilateral anterior pelvic ring fractures conservatively is supported by the results of this study and the developed test device was successfully used for biomechanical analyses of the pelvis with intact peripelvic soft tissues.
Symphyseal fixation in open book injuries cannot fully compensate anterior SI joint injury—A biomechanical study in a two-leg alternating load model
TLDR
Symphyseal locked plating significantly reduces relative movement of the sacroiliac joint in open book injuries type Tile B 1.1 or B1.2 (APC II) but cannot fully restore the situation of the intact sacroiliarac joint.
Biomechanical comparison of augmented versus non‐augmented sacroiliac screws in a novel hemi‐pelvis test model
TLDR
Cement augmentation of implanted sacroiliac screws may lead to superior construct stability and prevent mechanical complications, and a novel hemi‐pelvis test model with dissected symphysis was developed, which was found to be valid due to the reproduction of the clinically observed failure mode.

Cyclic loading of sacroiliac screws in Tile C pelvic fractures.
TLDR
Although the combination of anterior plate fixation combined with two sacroiliac screws is not as stable as the intact pelvis, in this study, embalmed aged pelves could be loaded repeatedly with physiologic forces.
Biomechanical testing of new and old fixation devices for vertical shear fractures of the pelvis.
TLDR
A plate for use on the anterior aspect of the sacroiliac (SI) joint using information obtained from cadaveric dissections and computed tomography scans of male and female pelvises is developed.
Biomechanical Analysis of Fixation for Vertically Unstable Sacroiliac Dislocations With Iliosacral Screws and Symphyseal Plating
TLDR
The two-hole symphyseal plate significantly increased the stability of the fixation construct in resisting linear displacement in all three planes and restores the normal response of the hemipelvis to axial loading.
Biomechanical comparison of posterior internal fixation techniques for unstable pelvic fractures.
TLDR
The results suggest that rigid posterior fixation of sacroiliac dislocations alone may obviate the need for additional complex anterior surgical procedures to fix rami fractures.
Biomechanical Comparison of Posterior Pelvic Ring Fixation
TLDR
Under conditions of maximal instability with similar material properties between specimens, differences in stiffness of posterior pelvic ring fixation can be demonstrated.
Triangular Osteosynthesis and Iliosacral Screw Fixation for Unstable Sacral Fractures: A Cadaveric and Biomechanical Evaluation Under Cyclic Loads
TLDR
Triangular osteosynthesis for unstable transforaminal sacral fractures provides significantly greater stability than iliosacral screw fixation under in vitro cyclic loading conditions.
Posterior Pelvic Fixation Using a Transiliac 4.5-mm Reconstruction Plate: A Clinical and Biomechanical Study
TLDR
Comparative biomechanical testing using cadaveric and artificial pelvises demonstrated that the strength of the transiliac plate method was equal to that of other techniques of posterior pelvic fixation.
Anterior approach and stabilization of the disrupted sacroiliac joint.
TLDR
New stabilization methods utilizing dynamic compression plates, reconstruction plates, and a new four-hole plate have been developed to provide more secure fixation of these unstable injuries.
Biomechanical Comparison of Lumbosacral Fixation Techniques in a Calf Spine Model
TLDR
The clinical observation that iliac fixation is least likely to fail in high-risk, long fusions is supported, and the effectiveness of adding a second fixation point distal to the S1 screws in reducing S1 screw strain is demonstrated.
