Abstract

We describe a series of three patients who sustained multiplanar sacral fracture with spinopelvic dissociation treated with bilateral triangle osteosynthesis supplemented with a gullwing plate. Multiplanar sacral fracture causes the sacrum to divide into two parts which in severe cases, fracture displacement results in neurological injury. Spinopelvic fixation supplemented with a gullwing plate surgical treatment is still a viable option with an acceptable outcome. The average waiting time prior to surgery is 3 weeks.
