METHODS: The T square instrument was constructed with a vertical limb perpendicular to 2 horizontal limbs in a T formation. At the conclusion of the instrumentation and preliminary reduction maneuvers, the T square was positioned with the horizontal limbs parallel to the pelvis and the vertical limb in line with the central sacral line...
