Patient-Specific Templates for Corrective Osteotomy

6 pagesPublished: August 17, 2017

Abstract

Correction osteotomy using conventional techniques may lead to under and over correction. The advantage of using patient specific templates for osteotomy is to predetermine the exact direction and degree of deformity before surgery and to estimate postoperative limb alignment which must mimic the physiologic loading to secure favorable clinical outcome.
