Aim To evaluate the case series of the patients operated with percutaneous fixation by the navigation system based on 3D fluo-roscopic images, to assess the precision of a surgical implant and functional outcome of patients. Methods A retrospective study of pelvic ring fractures in a 2-year period included those treated with the use of the O-Arm 2 in com-bination with the Stealth Station 8. Pelvic fractures were classifi-ed according to the Tile and the Young-Burgess classification. All patients were examined before surgery, with X-rays and CT scans, and three days after surgery with additional CT scan.

All patients were treated in the supine position, except two. A total of 41 iliosacral or transsacral screws and five anterior pelvic ring screws were implanted. The medium surgical time per screw was 41 minutes. There was a perfect correspondence of screw scores value from post-operative CT and intraoperative fluoroscopy. The mean screw score value was 0.92. There were no cases of poor positioning. The median follow-up was 17.5 months. The patients were satisfied with their health condition on SF-36. Conclusion The use of the O-arm guarantees great precision in the positioning of the screws and reduced surgical times with excellent clinical results in patients.

Abstract

Aim To evaluate the case series of the patients operated with percutaneous fixation by the navigation system based on 3D fluo-roscopic images, to assess the precision of a surgical implant and functional outcome of patients. Methods A retrospective study of pelvic ring fractures in a 2-year period included those treated with the use of the O-Arm 2 in com-bination with the Stealth Station 8. Pelvic fractures were classifi-ed according to the Tile and the Young-Burgess classification. All patients were examined before surgery, with X-rays and CT scans, and three days after surgery with additional CT scan. The positioning of the screws was evaluated according to the Smith score, the outcome with the SF-36. Results Among 24 patients 18 were with B and six with C type fracture according to Tile, while eight were with APC, 10 LC, and six with VS type according to Young-Burgess classification. All patients were treated in the supine position, except two. A total of 41 iliosacral or transsacral screws and five anterior pelvic ring screws were implanted. The medium surgical time per screw was 41 minutes. There was a perfect correspondence of screw scores value from post-operative CT and intraoperative fluoroscopy. The mean screw score value was 0.92. There were no cases of poor positioning. The median follow-up was 17.5 months. The patients were satisfied with their health condition on SF-36. Conclusion The use of the O-arm guarantees great precision in the positioning of the screws and reduced surgical times with excellent clinical results in patients.
