Virtual reconstruction of glenoid bone defects using a statistical shape model
Journal Contribution - Journal Article
Description of the native shape of a glenoid helps surgeons to preoperatively plan the position of a shoulder implant. A statistical shape model (SSM) can be used to virtually reconstruct a glenoid bone defect and to predict the inclination, version, and center position of the native glenoid. An SSM-based reconstruction method has already been developed for acetabular bone reconstruction. The goal of this study was to evaluate the SSM-based method for the reconstruction of glenoid bone defects and the prediction of native anatomic parameters.
