The correction of severe thoracic deformities is challenging. However, the usual imaging modalities are not sufficient for performing the surgery. Our objective was to describe the procedure and results of posterior modified wedge osteotomy aided by the techniques of computer-aided design–rapid prototyping (CAD-RP) to correct thoracic deformities. Twenty-one patients with thoracic deformities (eight males; 13 females) formed the study group. All patients underwent computed tomography (CT… CONTINUE READING
