Know what to expect for your shoulder arthroplasty upfront.
Surgeons using 2D images to diagnose and perform a shoulder arthroplasty know the challenge of finding the optimal location and orientation for the pilot hole in the glenoid, especially given the small surgical window and the unknown anatomy behind. Now, there is another way. Know what to expect for your shoulder arthroplasty upfront by working in three dimensions with Materialise.
Stay up-to-date with the latest insights and developments in Planning and Medical 3D Printing
Scan the patient and send the CT images to Materialise.
Our clinical engineer sends you the virtual 3D anatomical model. Inspect the 3D model and plan your surgery virtually.
We create patient-specific guides with a single and unique fit on the patient’s glenoid, which accurately transfers the planned location and orientation of the pilot hole.
Shipment and Surgery
After a quality check, the guide is shipped to your hospital.
The Materialise shoulder guides are supported in collaboration with DJO, Stryker, Lima and Mathys' implant systems.
How to Start Implementing 3D Printing in Your Hospital
Physicians around the globe share the same goal: providing the best care to their patients. In recent years, the complexity of procedures has increased, so has the need for enhanced planning, training and education. A growing number of interventionists and surgeons are using 3D-printed, patient-specific models in their practice to prepare for procedures with more confidence.
Join the Materialise experts for this educational webinar and learn:
- how 3D Printing can improve surgical planning, training and patient communication
- how to create your own 3D model for printing
- how you can get started
