Computer-assisted planning and navigation improves cutting accuracy during simulated bone tumor surgery of the pelvis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Resection of bone tumors within the pelvis requires good cutting accuracy to achieve satisfactory safe margins. Manually controlled bone cutting can result in serious errors, especially due to the complex three-dimensional geometry, limited visibility, and restricted working space of the pelvic bone. This experimental study investigated cutting… (More)
