BACKGROUND: A patient with osteoarthritis in need of a supramalleolar osteotomy to improve mobility and quality of life.
OPERATIVE PLAN: Assessment of the patients’ preoperative pathology was performed by analyzing their CBCT data in Bonelogic™ Foot & Ankle module.
The medial distal tibial angle (MDTA) and the tibial lateral surface angle (TLSA) were 85.5° and 93.7°, respectively. A corrective supramalleolar osteotomy was planned using the Planning module of Bonelogic™.
The simulation predicted that using a 14 mm saw with 0.4 mm thickness to create a wedge opening (of 8.72° and 5 mm wide), 20 mm from the tibial plafond to a depth of 31 mm, would result in an increase in the MDTA of 9.0° and a reduction of TLSA of 2.8°.
A surgical guide was manufactured and used in accordance with these parameters:
Disior’s Bonelogic™ medical imaging software, was built specifically to help clinicians make diagnoses and plan patient treatment. Bonelogic anatomical modules take DICOMs from CT, CBCT or WBCT and generates accurate models and analytics that describe the relationships between bones, like those used in this case study. The new Planning module, allows you to use these diagnostics to plan precise and effective treatments, through the creation of numerical plans and 3D-printed surgical guides (via third parties).
