Abstract

The authors describe the case of a patient who sustained a transverse sacral fracture (TSF) associated with a depressed laminar fracture in a personal watercraft accident. The patient underwent early surgery, which allowed a quick recovery. To the best of the authors' knowledge, the mechanism of injury and type of fracture have not been previously described or classified in cases of TSF.
