Abstract
Reconstructive operations for unstable  pelvic ring injuries  in most cases are performed  at later  date  after  trauma (period  of complete  stabilization of the vital functions). The paper presents  treatment outcomes  of three  patients with vertically unstable  pelvic ring injuries where minimally invasive lumbar-pelvic fixation with pedicle screws was applied. The morphology  of sacrum  injury  determined a configuration of the  lumbar-pelvic transpedicular system. In all cases the final surgery was performed  in the early period of traumatic disease, which made it possible to restore  the anatomy of the pelvic ring and obtain good functional outcomes.
