The Critical Role of 3D Printing in Hip Treatment: How Skeletal Stem Cells Can Augment the Outcome.
by Prof. Douglas Dunlop
Consultant Orthopedic Surgeon Southampton University Hospital, UK
Up to 27% of hip revisions are re-revisions due to a suboptimal fixation and suboptimal biomechanical reconstruction of the joint when combining standard components. Hip re-revisions are even three times more likely to fail compared to a primary acetabular revision. Learn all about Materialise aMace, the patient-specific implant designed to break the revision cycle.
Prof. Douglas Dunlop, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Southampton University Hospital in the United Kingdom, shows you hands-on examples that trigger a custom-made hip implant. Moreover, he will comment on the very first case series report focusing on the application of 3D-printed, patient-specific implants that have been augmented with autologous skeletal stem cells.
This webinar will give you key insights into…
- Why Prof. Dunlop believes additive manufacturing (also known as 3D printing) offers a significant opportunity for orthopaedic practice, bone tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine.
- The benefits of combining accurate clinical diagnostics with template planning and custom-made implants, including hands-on examples and testimonials.
- The very first case series study focusing on 11 patients treated with complex hip replacement surgery involving 3D-printed implants with SSCs seeded on to the implant surface to restore the anatomy and improve the skeletal biology.
- How to significantly improve the Oxford Hip Score (OHS) between pre-operative and post-operative scores of 11 patients that underwent hip revision surgery.
- The hands-on story of a 72-year-old patient with painful loosening of left THR acetabular component following a complex history of revisions for recurrent aseptic loosening who, after surgery, benefits from extensive (grade 3) new bone formation at the bone/implant interface.
Prof. Douglas Dunlop is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with a special interest in hip surgery. He was appointed to Southampton University Hospital NHS Trust in 2002. He completed his undergraduate training at UWCM, Cardiff and trained in Orthopaedic Surgery in Edinburgh. He has fellowships in hip surgery from; The Princess Elizabeth Orthopaedic Centre, Exeter; The Royal Adelaide Hospital; with two traveling fellowships to North America. He has an additional fellowship in complex knee surgery including ligament reconstruction.
He specializes in primary and revision hip replacement surgery with an interest in knee surgery. His particular interests are:
- Impaction bone grafting in primary and revision surgery
- Complex joint replacement including developmental & traumatic conditions
- Hip replacement with hard bearings (Ceramic and resurfacing for younger patients)
- Hip arthroscopy
Prof. Dunlop uses a variety of implants, both cemented and uncemented and is experienced in less invasive surgical techniques. He is a Fellow of the British Orthopaedic Association and a member of the British Hip Society.
Prof. Dunlop is an Honorary Professor of Orthopaedics at the University of Southampton and undertakes research on novel materials and stem cells. He is involved in multicenter trials looking at implants as well as synthetic bone graft substitutes. He completed an MD thesis from the University of Edinburgh on bone grafting in hip surgery, based on work in Australia and Edinburgh. He continues to supervise MD and PhD students in Southampton.
