Patient-specific Guides for Proximal Humerus Fracture

March 01, 2017

Contributors: Bruno Borralho Gobbato, MD; Bruno Borralho Gobbato, MD

Rapid prototyping is a promising and powerful technology, and patient-specific instruments are being used in high-cost procedures, such as arthroplasty. However, rapid prototyping and patient-specific instruments also can be used to aid in the fixation of difficult fractures, such as displaced proximal humerus fractures. The fixation of proximal humerus fractures may be a challenge. Locked plates are the preferred implant. This video discusses our experience using a new surgical method, preoperative planning with the use of three-dimensional software, and the creation of patient-specific guides to aid in the fixation of displaced proximal humerus fractures. A locked plate is used to automatically reduce and fix the fracture without fluoroscopy.
