Pelvic osteotomies: anatomic pitfalls at the ischium


Pelvic osteotomies for acetabular dysplasia include an osteotomy of the ischium. The potential anatomical hazards of three different osteotomies of the ischium were assessed by performing a triple osteotomy in a series of 8 fresh cadaver pelvises.
