Young ladies with painful knees, what can we do for them?

Patellar instability is a common problem especially among younger ladies often caused by internal torsion and/or a strong valgus. Diverse operational techniques have been presented such as trochleoplasty, MPFL reconstruction, or tubercle osteotomy, but what is the method of choice in which case?

At mediCAD® we see how orthopedics is becoming more and more standardized by concepts like that and want to assist the surgeon in using such techniques without getting a knot in their head or to pore over books. Therefore, all patellofemoral measurements used for the common instability scores3) can be measured with mediCAD® 3D Knee, which also indicates the physiological range.

mediCAD 3D Printing - Planning of a Trochleoplasty via 3D Print

Technological progress in visualisation techniques like 3D print support clinics in developing customised surgical solutions for patients. Due to the increasing development of technologies and, thus, more complex surgical interventions, better surgery preparation, digital planning and further qualification of doctors are needed. Especially for pre-operation planning 3D models can help create realistic and customised pathologies of the anatomic regions affected and support at therapy decision, or they help visualise the actual situation to doctors-to-be and give them the possibility to simulate the operation in advance.

Browser planning with mediCAD Web

With mediCAD® Web consultation of an area of interest can be done within a few clicks. Planning works even more effectively and quickly thanks to automatic measurement functions and corrections in a modern user interface with intuitive, reduced workflow. With careful, well-structured preoperative planning, a more patient-friendly environment is established because key information can be shared easily at all stages of patient care. Surgical teams run their planning on time, a fact, that contributes significantly to reducing delays and related operative costs.

mediCAD 3D Hip a winning solution for patients and orthopedic surgeons

In orthopedic terminology, arthroplasty is the name for surgery that aims to replace a damaged, or fractured joint with a prosthesis that is as close as possible to the original anatomy of the bone structures. mediCAD® 3D Hip plays a vital role in optimizing the outcome of complex surgery. Pre-operative and Post-operative planning with this state-of-the-art software contributes to patients progressing the desired levels of functionality earlier and also to avoid secondary problems.

The rise of computed tomography with mediCAD

mediCAD® offers you the possibility to plan the surgical procedure in the best possible way.
Only preoperative planning enables an optimal result. Here mediCAD® Classic supports you in the best possible way. You are guided step by step through the planning and receive essential information for the operation, such as stem and, if necessary, cup size, leg length difference, femoral offset, CCD angle, and much more information. 

Mechanical, anatomic, kinematic… TKA alignment techniques: What can I plan and execute by myself?

Is it the "End of an Era" like Riviere et al. claim, which happens now to mechanical alignment in total knee arthroplasty?

At mediCAD® we think a lot about how to make the currently 20-30% unsatisfied TKA patients happy, and we know, since results are consistent throughout many countries with sufficient statistics, that there must be a systematic error in the implant alignment technique performed so far. Where can this error be?

Advantages of preoperative planning of the inverse shoulder prosthesis with mediCAD

Bone deformities of the proximal extremity of the humerus can be degenerative or traumatic. Thanks to new technologies such as mediCAD® 3D Shoulder, the surgical advantages in the preoperative planning of inverse shoulder prostheses have been significantly improved. As a result, the implantation of inverse shoulder prostheses has increased significantly in the field of orthopedic surgery.

The landscape of 3D printing and state-of-the-art mediCAD 3D printing images in surgery

3D Printing applications by mediCAD® in surgery is a ground-breaking technology offering innovative, creative service options for personalized orthopedic surgery care. While 3D printing has been around for a while the development of mediCAD® software that combines this technology to facilitate the work of surgical teams with innovative 3D printing surgery solutions is the perfect fit for the modern-day surgery room.
