3D Planning, Patient-Specific Guides, and Custom Plates for Corrective Osteotomies
About this webinar
Dr. Wiig presents the challenges of a chronic slipped upper femoral epiphysis (SUFE) and why he decided not to use more traditional surgical methods but to use a patient-specific guide.
Taking on a case of a 14-year-old girl suffering from groin pain for one year, he decided not to go for the traditional methods, but got in touch with Materialise. During the webinar, you can see how the planning was done; what the saw guide, the pre- and post-op models, and custom-made plate looked like, and how he performed the surgery.
What you will learn
- What the challenges are when applying different surgical methods on a slipped upper femoral epiphysis (SUFE) defect
- What a patient-specific saw guide, the pre- and post-op models, and custom-made plate look like
- The practical advantages experienced when having an anatomical model at hand
- Why Dr. Wiig believes that this is a very safe and easy method of correcting big deformities in the proximal femur
