3D printed single-use patient-specific medical devices that help to prevent inaccuracies during surgery and to make pre-surgical plan a reality. Patient-specific surgical guides help a surgeon to precisely carry out the following operations:
positioning of standard or patient-specific implant components – with respect to biomechanical axes;
screw insertion of the standard or patient-specific implants – according to screwing axes and screw depth that were approved in the pre-surgical plan.
Patient-specific surgical guides are designed individually for each patient according to the patient’s anatomical model created from computed tomography images, the patient’s pathology and the surgeon’s requirements for the design. Consequently, patient-specific surgical guides offer a number of advantages compared to conventional surgery guiding methods.
manufacturing and composition
Advantages using patient-specific surgical guides
PRE-surgery PLANNING IS PERFORMED IN A 3D ENVIRONMENT USING THE PATIENT’S ANATOMICAL MODEL
THE NUMBER OF INSTRUMENTS USED in surgery DECREASes
SURGERY IS PERFORMED ACCORDING TO THE PRE-surgery PLAN
AFTER THE SURGICAL GUIDE USE IMPLANTS FITS PRECISELY TO THE BONE
LIKELIHOOD OF HUMAN ERROR IS REDUCED
LESS STRESS FOR THE SURGEON AND THE PATIENT
All incisions are made with extremely accuracy
surgery risks are reduced
