Personalized shoulder implants: from 3D scan to print
When it comes to shoulder joint replacements, a personalized 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 personalized 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 personalized implant, custom instruments, and bone models are provided to support you in surgery. The personalized instruments greatly facilitate the intervention by allowing you to accurately transfer the pre-operatively planned component placement and screw positioning to the surgery.
The Materialise Glenius Glenoid Reconstruction System is not commercially available in the US and Canada.
