Involvement of the iliac bone and a sacroiliac joint with malignant tumours is not uncommon; treatment is difficult due to the anatomy of the pelvis. Resection of the tumour mass must be extensive in order to achieve safe margins, but this may lead to instability and poor results. We present a new technique for reconstruction after resection of the iliac bone and sacroiliac joint including a sacral ala, and we present two illustrative cases, with 2 years follow-up.
