Abstract

Lumbosacral reconstruction can significantly increase stiffness of the spinopelvis of patients who underwent partial sacrectomy. However, the rod between L5 and ilia is the weakest region of all instruments. Stainless steel instruments have higher risk of rod failure and are less suitable for lumboiliac arthrodesis than titanium instruments.
