Corrective osteotomy of distal radius malunions using three-dimensional computer simulation and patient-specific guides to achieve anatomic reduction



Corrective osteotomy of distal radius malunions using three-dimensional computer simulation and patient-specific guides to achieve anatomic reduction



European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology 28(8): 1531-1535



Malunion is a common complication of distal radius fractures, especially those treated conservatively. In clinical studies, a significant correlation between anatomic reduction and wrist function has been shown. Corrective osteotomy is the preferred treatment for symptomatic cases, notwithstanding the technical challenges. The use of computer simulation improves pre-operative understanding of the three-dimensional deformity. Patient-specific surgical guides, based on precise pre-operative planning, lead to superior perioperative accuracy and reproducibility. The pre-operative planning and surgical technique of distal radius corrective surgery using three-dimensional computer technology are described in detail. The preliminary results demonstrate the excellent clinical and radiographic outcome of this technique.
