Custom Pelvic Implant Procedure
This video shows the procedure associated with a patient who has a dislocated hip with bone loss of the acetabulum. The primary hip replacement is replaced with a customised 3D printed pelvic implant to mate the bone loss and fill the defect.
Custom Implant AQI Process
The AQI Process was developed based on decades of experience in 3D planning. We use an innovative planning tool specifically for the surgical planning of complex defects and anomalies that could otherwise only be reconstructed with a custom-made prosthesis.
Conventional 2D planning methods come to their limits in these cases and clear defect classification and thus precise indication are difficult. Consequently, this leads to insecurity in the preoperative planning and can bear certain risks.
With our specific CT-based 3D planning and simulation program, surgeons can precisely reconstruct the patient’s individual defect situation for optimal planning and treatment. Precise preoperative planning documentation helps optimize the surgical workflow.
Custom Implant Patient Information
The AQI Process was developed based on decades of experience in 3D planning.
The advantages for a patient with a custom-made prosthesis include:
- Correction of deformities
- Natural joint loading
- Pain-free mobility
- Longevity of implants
- Successful treatment of most complex cases
