Surgical plan and results in operating room


The 3D model allowed a better understanding of the fracture lines and the relationship between the implant and the acetabulum.


The surgical plan involved reconstruction of the acetabular fossa, for which the 3D model was used to decide which reconstruction technique would be used and to advise on the type of replacement that needed to be performed.
