Cutting guide for an antebrachial correction osteotomy

Cutting guide for an antebrachial correction osteotomy

Correction of a leg deformity evolving at a young age

Dr Tamás Ipolyi (FuzioVet) asked for our help with planning the operation of a vizsla and with producing cutting and positioning guides necessary for the surgery. The goal of the operation was to correct the dog’s serious right forelimb deformity. Based on the CT images we segmented the area at issue and created a lifelike 3D model of it. Then, Dr Ipolyi and our colleague, Kálmán, started to collect ideas regarding the optimal operation procedure, during which they considered various anatomical and surgical factors. Professional consultation is an integral part of our job because the design of surgical aids can only proceed if we know what decisions veterinarian surgeons make in connection with the planned operation. Decision making was greatly supported by our 3D printed anatomical models which we manufactured in multiple versions. After all this, we designed and printed the cutting and positioning guides ensuring that the operation is carried out precisely. Both the anatomical models and the guides were DLP (Digital Light Processing) printed. The operation was successful thanks to the careful planning. The guides also served well, they made Dr Ipolyi’s job a lot simpler and more precise.
