Abstract: Percutaneous Pelvis Fixation Using the Camera-augmented C-arm
Today, percutaneous techniques are widely accepted for treatment of bone fractures in spine and pelvis. These techniques are enabled by modern imaging technology, such as mobile C-arm X-ray machines, and allow for substantial reductions in blood loss, collateral tissue damage, and overall surgery duration . While minimally invasive surgery is beneficial for the patient, it increases the task load for the surgeon.
