Beschreibung

Computer-assisted customization of patella implants and its placement could reduce complaints and revision surgeries by considering the patient’s individual anatomy and preserving the original movement. The capturing of the modified joint has to take place during surgery and requires the design and manufacturing of the implants to take place during surgery as well. The presented methods are essential steps toward the realization of customized patella implants.
