Longitudinal Midline Sacral Split Fracture-A Rare Entity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Fractures involving the central canal of the sacrum are rare injuries and can be transverse or longitudinal. Transverse fractures are by far common and associated with high incidence of neurological injuries. On the contrary, longitudinal midline split fracture is an extremely rare injury with minimal or no neurological injury. They are always associated with anterior pelvic ring fracture and are vertically stable needing only fixation of the anterior pelvic injury. Plating of the anterior pelvic ring in two planes would be beneficial than single plate to prevent gradual loss of reduction.
