ABSTRACT

Study Design: A Case report. Objectives: We report 4 cases of transverse fracture of upper sacrum with good clinical results. Summary of Literature Review: There is no clear guideline for the treatment of transverse fracture of upper sacrum. Materials and Methods: Four patients, who visited our institute for transverse fracture of upper sacrum, were reviewed from January 2006 to July 2009. Results: All patients had good clinical results after treatment. Conclusions: In all cases, patients were managed conservatively without reduction or internal fixation. Only for Roy-Camille type 2 and 3 transverse fracture of the upper sacrum with neurologic deficit, decompression was performed, yielding good clinical results.
