“Lulu sustained a comminuted proximal metaphyseal fracture of the left tibia following delivery.  Following surgical planning using OrthoView, CT based 2D models of both tibias were printed for surgery rehearsal. The fracture was repaired using two 4.5mm cortical screws to stabilize a cranial metaphyseal fragment and an 8mm x 160mm I-Loc interlocking nail with 2 bolts proximally and distally. Lulu recovered well from surgery and was discharged two weeks later after adequate healing was evidenced radiographically.”
