The technique requires the use of the combined obturator oblique inlet view to define the medial and lateral cortical borders of the corridor and an iliac oblique view to define the cranial aspect of the sciatic notch. No technique has been reported on how to safely avoid placement of such percutaneous fixation beyond the posterior cortex of the ilium. A simple technique using the blunt end of a guidewire and a true lateral of the posterior ilium is reported. Copyright © 2020 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
