Complete non-fusion of sacral spines is simply an incomplete vertebra. It is a type of medical condition in which the spinal cord, brain or meninges are under developed in a child at birth. The condition also termed as Spina bifida occulta can affect any level of the spine, but is usually found in the lower part of the back. Out of 137 dried sacrum, we noticed total spina bifida occulta in one case. Presence of this abnormality can lead to accidental injury of neural structures which are…

Total spina bifida occulta of the sacrum

This work reports a case of total spina bifida occulta, in a dried sacrum specimen, and suggests that this developmental defect must be considered for the sake of patient safety before undertaking caudal epidural block.

The sagittal anatomy of the sacrum among young adults, infants, and spondylolisthesis patients

The sagittal anatomic parameters of the sacrum were found to have a close relationship with the pelvic parameter of incidence angle, and therefore with the sagittal balance of the spine, and it can be concluded that the sacral anatomy plays a key role in spinal sagittal Balance.

Location of the sacral pedicle, foramina, and ala on the lateral aspect of the sacrum: a radiographic study.

These measurements, in conjunction with inlet and outlet radiographs, may aid in the recognition of the vital structures of the sacrum on the lateral radiographic view and enhance the safety of dorsal sacral screw placement.

The Internal Bony Architecture of the Sacrum

The internal bony architecture of the sacrum has several consistent features and the relatively uniform cortical thickness seen in each sacral specimen may have clinical significance in the internal fixation of this region.

Advantage of Pedicle Screw Fixation Directed Into the Apex of the Sacral Promontory Over Bicortical Fixation: A Biomechanical Analysis

A biomechanical study of human cadaveric sacra using insertional torque and bone mineral density was conducted to determine the optimal sagittal trajectory of S1 pedicle screws, finding the screws directed into the apex of the sacral promontory resulted in an average 99% increase in peakinsertional torque.
