Abstract: The open distal humeral fracture associated with the major loss of the articular surface and bony structure is a challenging problem for orthopedic surgeons. In this case report, we describe a case of complete missing lateral column of the distal humerus with severe articular destruction of capitellum and lateral trochlear ridge which was treated with the patient-specific implant created with three-dimensional printing technology. Apart from anatomic replacement of the articular surface, the lateral collateral… Show more

“…Zhang et al ( 17 ) used an intercalary prosthesis to reconstruct humeral shaft defects following tumor resection, and the prosthesis was designed and manufactured without microporous structures and 3D printing technology. Moreover, Luenam et al ( 18 ) used 3D printing technology to repair severe distal humerus fractures with complete loss of the lateral column; however, this was structural rather than segmental repair. Hence, we sought to introduce a more suitable individualized prosthesis aimed at the reconstruction of humeral defects in this case.…”

“…The 3D printed Ti6Al4v prosthesis was designed as a "prosthesis-intramedullary nail lateral plate" integrated implant with a homogeneous porous structure with 70% porosity. This medical-grade titanium alloy offers a comparatively lower elastic modulus, capable of more effectively transferring stress at the interface (12). The Ti6Al4v prosthesis was implanted into the induced membrane during the second stage of surgical treatment, following a three-month rehabilitation period after the first stage of surgery.…”
