Complex Glenoids in My Practice


About this webinar

In this webinar, Prof. Ekholm discusses how he used a glenoid implant instead of a bone graft to treat challenging cases of glenoid bone defect reconstruction.

During the webinar, three such cases are discussed, two from Prof. Ekholm, and one from Dr. Wolf. All cases included the use of patient-specific implants made with medical 3D printing.

What you will learn

  • A bit of theory: anatomical features of the glenoid, why the glenoid bone is such a precious commodity, and the different classifications
  • The different methods you could use for correction (e.g., corrective reaming, structural grafting)
  • Why some cases are beyond the limit of standard implants with bone grafts, and why Prof. Ekholm opted for a different technique
  • The different steps of working with Materialise for a patient-specific implant illustrated by preoperative plans, analysis, and post-operative results of three patient cases
