LRS CiS - Innovative Solution for the Sacrum
LRS designed and manufactured an innovative custom solution to assist a surgeon with a pathological fracture of the sacrum.
The case involved using the patient's CT data to design 2 custom plates to fit onto the left and right ilium of the patient. These plates were then connected by a threaded rod, to ensure sufficient compression and stability of the Sacro-Iliac Joints. The plates were 3D printed in Ti6Al4V, incorporating a trabecular mesh, to ensure good bone in-growth.
Plastic models and guides were provided to assist the surgeon with the correct positioning of the implant.
