Patient specific 3D printed implants

Custom designed 3D printed implants offer a solution in patients where other reconstruction options are not available. For the design and fabrication of these implants, we collaborate with different companies.
A 41 year old female suffered a combination of a large acetabular and a subtotal femoral defect, due to a chronic low grade periprosthetic joint infection of a revision total hip replacement.
The final procedure included reconstruction of the pelvis with an OSSISĀ® AceOs plus custom acetabular implant. Femoral reconstruction was performed using a MUTARSĀ® proximal femoral replacement with a custom MUTARS C-fit 3D printed joint sparing fixation, preserving the native knee joint and with this preventing the necessity for total femoral replacement.
