Recently, orthopedics center of Zhujiang Hospital, Southern Medical University successfully completed the first guide navigation technology in 3D printing vertebral model and operation through the correction of Marfan's syndrome in patients with scoliosis surgery, finally help from Shantou 14-year-old girl Ying stand straight body.
From small to large, Ingrid scoliosis is more and more serious, lives have been affected, for example, school homework, books can not be put in front of write, should be put in the body side 90 degree position. Recently, orthopedics center of Zhujiang Hospital, deputy director Zhu Lixin Professor admissions, Ying has typical symptoms and signs of Marfan syndrome, her scoliosis and other types of scoliosis, vertebral pedicle, tend to have multiple developmental abnormalities, can't buy screws, fixation, operation difficulty is great, the risk is high. Zhu Lixin's condition after the comprehensive study of Ingrid, decided to adopt the new 3D printing technology navigation surgery.
Zhu Lixin use 3D printing Ingrid vertebral model, preoperative through repeated comparison, determine the operation of screw type and screw channel, also in model formulation fixed segment, the corresponding section of the section made guide, the guide plate selected playing screw position and determine to which side to play, to ensure that the damage to a minimum. Combined with intraoperative imaging to monitor and guide navigation, again to determine the position of screw, precise guidance nail fixed, 100% to ensure the safety of patients, the successful completion of the the digital spine precision and minimally invasive surgery.
After the operation, Ying found themselves grow 9.5 cm (preoperative 164 cm, postoperative 173.5 cm), walk was no longer a skew, breathe more smoothly. It is understood that her life expectancy is also expected to reach the average level of normal people.
