A new, easy, fast, and safe method for CT-guided sacroplasty.
Publication types: Case Reports ; Journal Article
Sacral insufficiency fractures constitute clinical challenges because no effective surgical techniques can be applied and only a conservative treatment is currently performed. Sacroplasty is increasingly used to treat sacral insufficiency fractures. A computed tomography (CT)-guided technique concerning the placement of the sacroplasty needles within the sacral wings by using a laser alignment light guidance associated with a CT gantry tilt in a plane parallel to the sacral bone is presented. This method allowed a fast and precise placement of the needle in and along the sacral wings, thus preventing the use of multiple needles to reach the fracture sites.
