Pelvic fixation is most frequently indicated in the pediatric population for the treatment of neuromuscular scoliosis with significant pelvic obliquity. Neuromuscular scoliosis surgery is associated with a high risk of complications, and this is further increased by extension of fusion to the sacrum. Numerous techniques have been described for pelvic fixation associated with a long spine fusion each with its own set of specific benefits and risks. This article reviews the contemporary surgical techniques of pelvic fixation used to extend a spine fusion to the sacrum and pelvis focusing on the management of neuromuscular scoliosis, including their biomechanical rationale, results, and complications.
