How Preoperative Planning and 3D Printing Can Help with Difficult Glenoid Deficiencies

About this webinar

Dr. Guisasola explains how the collaboration started and how his hospital and radiology department work with Materialise for initial glenoid assessments. He shares when the hospital uses 3D printing in orthopaedic surgery, illustrating this with examples and elaborating how he uses 3D models with two specific cases. Afterward, he comments on the preoperative 3D plans and analysis that he did working with Materialise to prepare a 3D-printed implant for a complex shoulder revision surgery.
