The sacroiliac (SI) joints are paired diarthrodial articulations of the sacrum and ilium and serve as the connection between the spine and pelvis. The small amount of motion in the joint (2-4 degrees) occurs primarily through nutation and counternutation of the sacrum.[1][1] There are no muscles 
Sacroiliitis in cancer patients: a review of current literature.
TLDR
There is a need to characterize any relationship between cancer and SI joint dysfunction and pain, as the cancer population is exposed to unique stressors that might facilitate development of SI joint pain that includes cancer itself and therapy-related complications. Expand

Sacroiliac Joint Pain and Its Treatment.
TLDR
Clinically, the SIJ can be challenging to evaluate; however, assessing pain location, patient posture/movement, and provocative manual testing are useful in making the presumptive diagnosis of SIJ disruption. Expand

TLDR
The iFuse system is an effective and safe treatment for minimally invasive surgical arthrodesis of the SIJ and pain and functional impairment can be significantly improved, however, further controlled studies are necessary. Expand
A systematic review of minimally invasive sacroiliac joint fusion utilizing a lateral transarticular technique
Background A number of studies have been published regarding minimally invasive surgical (MIS) fusion of the sacroiliac (SI) joint using a lateral transarticular approach. Herein we report aExpand
Sacroiliac Joint Fusion Methodology - Minimally Invasive Compared to Screw-Type Surgeries: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.
TLDR
In this analysis, compared to screw-type surgeries, the iFuse system showed statistically superior outcomes, and this was the case when outcome measures were classified into 3 main categories - Pain, Disability/Physical Function, and Global/QOL. Expand
Postoperative complications in patients undergoing minimally invasive sacroiliac fusion.
TLDR
The results of this study show that minimally invasive SI joint fusion could possibly carry higher risks of complications than previously stated, and are useful for physicians and patients when considering treatment for chronic SI joint pain. Expand
Systematic Review of the Diagnostic Accuracy and Therapeutic Effectiveness of Sacroiliac Joint Interventions.
TLDR
The evidence for the accuracy of diagnostic and therapeutic effectiveness of sacroiliac joint interventions varied from Level II to Level IV, and the limitations for therapeutic interventions include variations in technique, variable diagnostic standards for inclusion criteria, and variable results.
