Complex cranioplasty

A patient had underwent a bifrontal decompressive craniectomy due to a cerebral oedema and was therefore suffering from a bifrontal defect. A bifrontal cranial implant was created intraoperatively thanks to SkullPT to reconstruct this patient's skull.

1. CT-scan segmentation & 3D reconstruction
Based on the CT-scan, we reconstructed the patient's skull in 3D.

2. Implant design
Using the 3D reconstruction, we designed a 3D implant design fitting the bifrontal defect, taking into account the surgeon's feedback. Some clearance had to be foreseen in order to be able to insert the implant on the patient's head.

3. Custom mold
The custom mold was manufactured by 3D printing, delivered with a biocompatible model of the patient's skull and an implant trial. Everything was sterilized in-hospital.

4. Molding
At the early stage of the surgery, bone cement (PMMA) was introduced in the mold. Once the dissection was performed, the mold was opened to obtain the implant.

5. Adaptation
The implant shape was validated thanks to the implant trial on the patient's head.

6. Fixation
The implant was then fixed using miniplates and the result was exactly as planned. The clearance foreseen was visible but did not affect the stability of the implant at all.

Ulnar tumor resection reconstructed using an allograft

A 15-year-old girl affected by an Ewing’s sarcoma of the ulna. The tumor involved the median and distal third of ulna. The resection was planned including a 10mm-safe margin proximally and 5mm distally. A step cut has been planned to save tumor-free bone and keep an anchoring zone for the reconstruction plate.

1. Tumor delineation
Views of the tumor delineation (blue zone) on MRI. The surgeon is asked to draw the tumor volume on each MRI slide where it is visible.

2. MRI and CTscanner fusion
Fusion of the MRI (B, yellow/red) and the tumor volume (C, green zone) onto the CTscanner (A). Note that the different shape of muscles between MRI and CTscanner implies an unsignificant mispositionning.

3. Resection planning
3D views of the planned resection. The distal step cut has been designed to obtain an immediate stability preventing a transversal rotation of the allograft with respect to the patient.

4. Allograft planning
Allograft was CTscanned and matched with the patient. Only one ulna was available and was oversized for the child. An algorithm has found the positionning that optimizes the host-allograft junctions. Note the different orientations between host and allograft.
The reconstruction has been simulated, including the step cut.

5. Bone-specific instruments
An instrument was designed to perform the tumor resection. Patient-specific surfaces allow a perfect positioning on the bone surface. K-wires can be inserted to temporarily fix the instrument during the cuttings. The falt surface guides the saw blade (or the chisel) in the correct direction. Cuting depth are engraved on the edge of the instrument.
A second instrument dedicated to the allograft has been specificly designed.

6. Intra-operative use
Bone models are sterilized and used intra-operatively to identify bone landmarks. This can be seen as an intra-op navigation.
Once the surgical approach is completed, the instrument is positioned onto the bone surface and rigidly fixed using KWires.
The same process is repeated for the allograft. The tumor resection and allograft cutting are exactly as planned.

Pelvic tumor resection reconstructed with an allograft implant composite

A 41-year-old woman affected by a low grade sarcoma located within the pelvis. The tumor involved the upper part of the acetabulum. The resection was planned including a 5mm-safe margin to preserve the posterior columna and the anterior-inferior spine. The reconstruction has been planned using a massive bone allograft.

1. MRI and CTscanner fusion
Fusion of the MRI (B, yellow/red) and the tumor volume (C, blue zone) onto the CTscanner (A).

2. Resection planning
3D views of the planned resection. The safe margin has been chosen at 5 mm to preserve the posterior column and the muscle insertion on the anterior inferior spine.

3. Allograft planning
Three Allografts were CTscanned and matched with the patient. The objective was to restore the congruency at the acetabulum.
The pictures show the reconstruction perfectly restoring the joint continuity.

4. Bone-specific instruments
An instrument was designed to perform the tumor resection. Patient-specific surfaces allow a perfect positioning on the bone surface. K-wires can be inserted to temporarily fix the instrument during the cutting. The flat surface guides the saw blade (or the chisel) in the correct direction. Cutting depth are engraved on the edge of the instrument.
A second instrument dedicated to the allograft has been specificly designed.

5. Intra-operative use
Bone models are sterilized and used intra-operatively to identify bone landmarks. This can be seen as an intra-op navigation.
Once the surgical approach is completed, the instrument is positioned onto the bone surface and rigidly fixed using KWires.
The same process is repeated for the allograft. The tumor resection and allograft cutting are exactly as planned.

6. Quality assessment
Intra-operatively, the accuracy has been checked introducing the resection into the bone model (A). The cuttings are perfectly as planned.
The post-op follow up has shown an excellent allograft integration into the host bone (B and C).

Tumor resection reconstructed with a modular implant

A 17-year-old girl affected by a high grade voluminous sarcoma involving partly the Zone 1, Zone 2 and Zone 3 of Enneking. A 10mm safe margin has been planned. To reconstruct the anatomy, a 'ice cream' implant has been guided by a Patient-Specific Instrument.

1. MRI and CTscanner fusion
Fusion of the MRI (B, yellow/red) and the tumor volume (C, blue zone) onto the CTscanner (A).

2. Resection planning
3D views of the planned resection. The safe margin has been chosen at 10 mm.

3. Implant positioning
The chosen reconstruction was a so called "ice cream implant". The 3D model of the implant was positioned to mimic the actual acetabulum.

4. Bone-specific instruments
An instrument was designed to perform the tumor resection (left picture). Patient-specific surfaces embedded on the instrument allow a perfect positioning on the bone surface. They are chosen to avoid the soft tissues. K-wires can be inserted to temporarily fix the instrument during the cuttings. The flat surfaces guide the saw blade (or the chisel) in the correct direction. Cutting depth are engraved on the edge of the instrument.A second instrument dedicated to the allograft has been specificly designed.
The second instrument has been designed to drill a Steinmann pin that will guide the reamer. An implant is then inserted in the planned direction.

SkullPT

The patient has underwent a craniectomy to treat a cerebral tumor and was therefore suffering from a right fronto-temporal cranial defect. A cranial implant was created intraoperatively thanks to SkullPT to reconstruct this patient's skull.

1. CT-scan segmentation & 3D reconstruction
Based on the CT-scan, we reconstructed the patient's skull in 3D

2. Implant design
Using the 3D reconstruction, we designed a 3D implant design fitting the cranial defect, taking into account the surgeon's feedback.

3. Custom mold
The custom mold was manufactured by 3D printing, delivered with a biocompatible model of the patient's skull and an implant trial. Everything was sterilized in-hospital.

4. Molding
At the early stage of the surgery, bone cement (PMMA) was introduced in the mold. Once the dissection was performed, the mold was opened to obtain the implant.

5. Adaptation
The implant was validated on the model of the patient's skull and on the patient's head. Its contours were slightly adapted by milling to obtain a perfect fit. The surgeon also decided to make holes in the implant before implantation.

6. Fixation
The implant was fixed using square-shaped miniplates and the result was exactly as planned.
