I think this is single plane, but not sure:

"Incision was made just distal and lateral to the left anterior superior iliac spine area under fluoroscopic guidance blunt dissection was carried down to the anterior inferior iliac spine. A 35 drill was then used to get a starting point at the anterior to iliac spine. A 5.0 partially threaded Schanz pin was then placed. The position of the pin was confirmed using biplanar fluoroscopy. Satisfied this the same procedure was repeated for the right side. A simple anterior frame was then placed connected with carbon fiber rods and appropriate clamps."

Thank you!
