Computer-Assisted Preoperative Planning for Reduction of Proximal Femoral Fracture Using 3-D-CT Data

Abstract

This paper describes procedures for repositioning calculations of fractured bone fragments using 3-D-computed tomography (CT), aimed at preoperative planning for computer-guided fracture reduction of the proximal femur. Fracture boundaries of the bone fragments, as ldquofracture lines (FLs),rdquo and the mirror-transformed contralateral femur shape… (More)
