3D printing for corrective osteotomy of malunited distal radius fractures: a low-cost workflow


After a severe trauma, a 16-year-old female patient sustained multiple injuries, including a distal radius fracture of the left arm. This distal radius fracture eventually developed into a malunion. In this case, we demonstrate our preoperative low-cost workup for three-dimensional (3D) planned and assisted corrective osteotomy of a malunited distal radius fracture using an in-hospital 3D printer.
