By means of the posterior fasciotomy described, good results with lasting relief were obtained in sixteen, or 76 per cent., of the twenty-one cases followed. It is believed that this operation will supplant to a large degree radical arthrodesis of the sacro-iliac joint when this is not the seat of a lesion demonstrable in the roentgenogram.
