Abstract

Six pelvic osteotomies (Salter, Sutherland, Steel, Tönnis, Chiari, and periacetabular) were performed on the right hemipelvis of adult female pelvic plastic models. Each pelvis underwent conventional X-ray and computed tomographic digital pelvimetry before and after osteotomy. The change in the anteroposterior and transverse dimensions at the inlet, midpelvis, and outlet were calculated. None of the osteotomies significantly decreased the inlet. The Salter and Sutherland osteotomies decreased the midpelvis to borderline low. The Salter, Sutherland, and Steel osteotomies significantly decreased the pelvic outlet. These changes correlated closely with those in living patients. Much of this decrease is nullified when the osteotomy is performed prior to the pubertal growth spurt.
