The fixation of lumbosacral and sacral pelvis can be performed on the ilium and the Second Sacrum Vertebrae (S2). Although several studies on the anatomical and biomechanical features of S2 screw fixation have been published, little clinical application has been reported, especially combination of anatomical investigation and clinical study. This study was performed to design and optimize the method of pedicle screw placement for S2.
