Abstract OBJECTIVE This study aimed to explore the clinical application of 3D printing technology in the surgical treatment of CS due to HV. METHOD Twenty-four patients (11 in the 3D-printing group and 13 in the conventional group) with scoliosis secondary to a single HV were retrospectively reviewed. All of the cases underwent hemivertebrectomy and short-segment fixation. Virtual preoperative planning, operation simulation, and intraoperative application of 3D-printed patient-specific templates...
Abstract Objective To report the outcomes of severe kyphoscoliosis secondary to ankylosing spondylitis (AS) corrected with 3D-printing individualized guiding templates. Methods Computer tomography (CT) data of patients with severe kyphoscoliosis secondary to AS were used to reconstruct 3D models of the spine and to develop a surgical plan. An asymmetric wedge pedicle subtraction osteotomy (PSO) was simulated using medical computer design software. Before the actual surgery, continual surgical si...
