3D-Side has recently introduced the customize solution to monitor the production of patient-specific devices. Laurent highlights an instance where a 9-year-old girl had a bone tumor at one femur, which was manually treated. The patient had a second tumor on the tibia at the opposite side. The latter one has been processed using the 3D-Side patient-specific instrument. After a thorough discussion with the surgeon operating, they decided to decrease the safe margin to a minimal value. They successfully managed to spare the knee joint and avoid knee prosthesis.
We solved problems during our PhD theses that helped us to assist the surgeons with the best solutions. After years of R&D and production of patient-specific devices, our software and infrastructure have been optimized to face all the challenges in this custom-made field, from communication to certification
