We report a case of combined percutaneous screw placement and cementoplasty guided by CT and fluoroscopy in a 66-year-old man with extensive osteolytic destruction of the right iliac bone and sacral wing due to metastasic infiltrative vesical carcinoma. The medical condition was responsible for very limited and painful walking. Two perpendicular screws were inserted into the iliac bone and sacroiliac joint, and bone cement injection was used to anchor the screws and restore the mechanical continuity of the pelvis ring. This minimally invasive procedure allowed for significant and rapid resumption of painless walking.
