Abstract

The osseous pelvis is a frequent site of metastases. Alteration of bone integrity may lead to pain but also to functional disability and pathological fractures. Percutaneous image-guided minimally invasive procedures, such as cementoplasty and screw fixation, have emerged as a viable option to provide bone reinforcement and fracture fixation, as stand-alone or combined techniques. Understanding the biomechanics of the osseous pelvis is paramount to tailor the treatment to the clinical situation. The purpose of the present review is to present the biomechanics of the osseous pelvis and discuss its implication for the choice of the optimal consolidative treatment.
