Patient-Specific Implant for Post-Traumatic Acetabular Defect Reconstruction

About this webinar

Dr. med. Simon Weidert, Trauma and Reconstructive Surgery from the University Hospital of Munich, Germany, explains how he found a suitable solution for this patient by using a custom 3D-printed hip implant in a complex case where a standard implant could no longer provide an adequate solution.

He presents a patient case about a 33-year-old male suffering the consequences of a motorcycle accident. Dr. Weidert shares his experience with the Materialise aMace solution, starting from an introduction to the case and explaining the acetabular pathology, to his development of treatment strategy as well as the intraoperative workflow and results.
