The Hip module helps you plan hip implants. It is based upon planning methods for hip endoprosthetics using radiographic imaging and prosthesis templates.
Now you can quickly:
- Select and fit suitable cup and shaft combinations
- Correct an adduction or abduction
- Determine pre- and post-operative leg-length compensation and display this on the image
- Use the FAI module, developed in close collaboration with Dr. Wolfgang Zinser
- Plan an intertrochanteric osteotomy
The module "Intertrochanteric osteotomy" allows planning an osteotomy at the upper portion of the femur, the greater trochanter. The intertrochanteric osteotomy often provides the possibility to delay the use of a prosthesis. The module allows to plan the resection close to the trochanter and to rotate around a defined center of rotation. The osteotomy can flexibly be changed.
The FAI function in the module "hip" provides the user with tools and techniques which can be used to diagnose pathologies such as: CAM, Pincer-, Mixed - impingement as well as dysplasia of the hip can be found.
Looking for a biometric analysis?
No problem with mediCAD®!
It automatically suggests the optimal position of the joint center point while considering body size, weight and initial biometric analysis. Load distribution is improved and physiological muscle flexing is re-established using the biometrically determined standard range for anchoring of prostheses. Optimized implant geometry avoids biomechanically unfavorable results.
mediCAD® has unique capabilities for answering these types of questions.
The Pediatrics module allows you to use clinically relevant values to evaluate hip joints.
Since American and European orthopedic surgeons use different criteria to evaluate the hip situation, the Coxometry module modifies the procedure accordingly. mediCAD® evaluates most of the criteria using known grading tables such as the acetabular head index or the cup angle of inclination. Saving and/or printing of planning images enables creation of follow-up studies.
