How 3D Pre-Op Planning and Printing Can Help with the Difficult Glenoid
About this webinar
Dr. Guisasola explains how the collaboration started and how his hospital and radiology department now works with Materialise for the initial glenoid assessments. He shares when the hospital uses 3D printing, illustrating this with examples and then 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 for a shoulder implant surgery for a patient with a big defect.
