Laurent, our CEO, will attend the SSG2017 in Aarhus. Feel free to book a date with him!
Based on image analysis (CT and MRI), the bone tumor is located accurately. The cutting trajectories are chosen by including a user-defined safe margin. A patient-specific instrument is then manufactured by 3D printing and delivered at the hospital for final sterilization.
In the operative theater, it finds its unique position onto the bone thanks to the specific surface. Then, the saw blade is guided by its flat surface.
Based on the patient's medical images, the mold is manufactured by 3D printing and delivered at the hospital for final sterilization.
In the operating theater, the surgeon manufactures the implant by introducing bone cement into the mold. Within only a few minutes, the implant is ready to be fixed into the patient by any way.Read more
Synostosis / Complex fracture
A patient specific guide is preoperatively used to correct a bone structure.
Based on the patient's CT-scan, a 3D simulation is performed, supervised by the surgeon, to determine the correction to obtain.
Then, based on this planning, a surgical guide is designed and produced to guide the surgeon's cutting tools during operation. It allows to accurately obtain the planed position.
Using 3D softwares, additive manufacturing technologies and strong knowledge of the surgical field, 3D-Side plans complex interventions and provides the surgeon with patient-specific instruments or custom implants to perform the surgery. These instruments will reliably transfer the pre-operative planning into the operation room, increasing health care quality as well as reducing the operating time.Read more
