LRS CiS - Custom 3D-Printed Pubis

LRS, together with Prof. Keith Hosking (Life Vincent Pallotti Hospital, Cape Town), designed a custom Ti6Al4V pubis implant for a patient with an aggressive radiation induced sarcoma.

The implant was designed using the patient’s CT scan. It was then 3D printed in Ti6Al4V with a trabecular mesh to ensure osseointegration. Surgical models were provided to ensure correct margins and alignment of the implant intra-operatively. Short-term outcomes are encouraging.

We feel fortunate to be given the opportunity to provide surgical options that would otherwise not be available to patients and are excited to continue helping our clients with custom implant solutions.
