EOS imaging (EOSI), a pioneer in 2D/3D orthopedic medical imaging, presented its EOSapps solution with particular focus on hipEOS 3.0 online surgical planning software at the French Society of Orthopedic and Traumatological Surgery (SOFCOT) Congress.
The congress program included the symposium: “Planning, Executing, Evaluating the Total Hip Arthproplasty: EOS Solutions at Each Step of the Care Pathway” with Professor Jean Yves Lazennec (AP-HP, Paris) and Doctor Nicolas Verdier (Clinique Jean Villar, Bordeaux). Prof. Lazennec address focused on current progresses in total hip arthroplasty (THA) made possible by post-operative analysis with the EOS solution. Dr. Verdier will shared first time results about the association of hipEOS 3D surgical planning with intra-operative navigation (Orthopilot – BBraun) to execute a 3D, personalized plan for patient hip replacement that takes into account the patient anatomy in the weight-bearing and seated functional positions. The anatomical and functional information provided by hipEOS was used in real time in the operating room to guide navigation and achieve optimal positioning of the implant components.
“We are pleased to see presentations at SOFCOT of further progress in hip prosthesis surgery thanks to our 3D imaging and online automated surgical simulation solution. EOS planning, combined with navigation – as well as other per-operative execution systems such as robotics – makes it possible to consider more precise surgeries with better clinical results. We are very proud to be able to offer new perspectives to surgeons and patients to improve the management of THA, a high volume and costly procedure” concluded Marie Meynadier, Chief Executive Officer of EOS imaging.
