Patient-specific shoulder implants: from 3D scan to print
When it comes to shoulder joint replacements, a patient-specific approach can often be more suitable than standard solutions - particularly in cases that involve severe bone defects. Materialise Glenius offers surgeons patient-specific implants for cases of reverse shoulder arthroplasty.
Our service brings predictability to your work. Being able to see the anatomy in 3D beforehand enables you to run through a more complete planning exercise. This reduces the elements of surprise you might otherwise meet in the operating room.
Four steps to develop your patient-specific implant:
Send us your CT scan to initialize your case
Our experienced Clinical Engineers prepare a planning and design proposal based on the patient’s anatomy
Evaluate the implant proposal and provide us with feedback
The Glenius implant is produced and shipped, with custom-made accessories and case-specific documentation
Next to the patient-specific implant, custom instruments and bone models are provided to support you in surgery. The patient-specific instruments greatly facilitate the intervention by allowing you to accurately transfer the pre-operatively planned component placement and screw positioning to the surgery.
