Developmental Dysplasia Of The Hip
A physical 3D printed model was used help plan reconstruction of the acetabulum using a section of the patient’s iliac crest. The model provided a much greater impression of the femoral head & acetabular surface.
Twisted Radius And Ulna
A patient specific physical 3D printed model provided better insight into the pathology leading to a drastic reduction in theatre time and optimum result for the patient.
Physical 3D models were used to trial a novel procedure and measure equipment before surgical intervention of a patient with severe osteogenesis imperfecta. Additional diagnosis was discovered with loss of bone growth on tibial head from the physical 3D model as well as giving a greater spatial understanding of the coxa vara of the patient’s pathology.
