Long Leg - Osteotomy

Use the Osteotomy module to plan femoral or tibial corrective osteotomies with single or multiple osteotomies, using the open wedge or closed wedge technique. Axial misalignments are found automatically. Corrections are handled automatically or manually. An integrated database makes it easy to select suitable osteosynthesis components such as nails, plates, screws and others. With mediCAD®, merging partial images to create a complete long-leg image is a very simple & intuitive process.

Osteotomy according to Dror Paley

An analysis determines the type, number, size and localization of the osteotomies. When correction is complete, all joint-related mechanical weight-bearing axes and joint tangents must lie within the normal range.

Common methods: Open Wedge oder Closed Wedge

All pre- and post-operative results are shown. Misalignments can be calculated using the expanded Osteotomy module according to Dror Paley. The process has been used for years at www.gelenkzentrum-wiesbaden.de. The mathematical principles are according to Prof. Dror Paley, Baltimore as well as Prof. Dr. J. Pfeil and Prof. Dr. B. Gladbach.

- Analysis of the pre-operative situation
- Determination of CORA/NCORA, single or multiple osteotomies
- Simulation of post-operative results.
- Automatic calculation of optimal angles.
- Determination of the apex and actual angle of deformity from the AP and sagittal views.
- Interactively select and evaluate the correction yourself.


Torsion measurement

The "torsion measurement" function in the whole leg module allows femoral and tibial measurement of internal or external torsion. This information is useful for remodeling osteotomies and can be used intraoperatively. The measurement of the TT-TG distance over the distance between the sulcus of the trochlea and the tibial tuberosity can be used in case of patellar instability.
