Computer-assisted pre-operative planning for hip joint-preserving surgery

Kang, M. and Sadri, H. and Magnenat-Thalmann, N.

Abstract: Femoroacetabular impingement arises from the abnormal shape of the femoral head and/or acetabulum. By reducing the increased radius of the femoral head and the ossified acetabulum, impingements of the hip joint can be removed. And more, periacetabular osteotomy is an effective way to reorient the acetabulum in young adults with symptomatic anterior femoroacetabular impingement due to acetabular retroversion. As a diagnosis and a pre-operative planning of joint preserving surgery for the treatment of the femoroacetabular impingement, we implemented bone reshaping process in a computer system. It included a diagnosis of impingements based on the morphology. By using our planning system, surgeons could select the region to cut and could pre-assess impingement- free motions.
