The fixing system, especially for an intervertebral wedge (10) in the sacral region, consists of two pedicular screws (1) linked by a bar (3) with a central thrust plate (5) which presses against the sacrum and supports the wedge. The bar and thrust plate are made from a lightweight biocompatible material such as titanium, and the rear part of the thrust plate has a notch for the passage of a ligament. The screws have expanding shanks, and the bar ends are fixed in the screw heads (2) by plugs (4).
