To provide a guide of the different approaches for percutaneous interventions of the pelvic girdle.
A: Anatomical bases for percutaneous approaches to the pelvic girdle
B: Choice of the technique of guidance and anatomical landmarks
C: Overview of interventions for the pelvic girdle: steroid injections, biopsies, cementoplasty, tumor ablation, drainage.
D: Case-based examples
Different percutaneous interventions are performed around the pelvic girdle whose anatomy is complex and difficult to handle with fluoroscopy alone. Observance of vasculonervous bundles and anatomical compartments under CT guidance enables performing these procedures with maximal safety. We detail the important anatomical landmarks, discuss the choice of the imaging technique and provide case-based examples with thorough analysis of the technique employed and the approach chosen.
