Professor Hedi Sariali from the Pitié Salpetriére Hospital, Paris gets proceedings underway at the 2018 HipPLAN User Group Meeting.

Professor Sariali presents his vast experience of 3D pre- operative planning and reminds delegates that as patients get younger, they come with higher demands and expectations. Accurate pre- operative planning using Symbios’ proprietary HipPLAN software assist with the optimal surgical approach and implant selection for that particular patient, restoration of the hip rotation centre and consideration of the various anatomic parameters that influence hip biomechanics.

Between 2000 and 2014, Professor Sariali analysed a consecutive series of 610 Total Hip Replacements carried out through a Direct Anterior Approach (DAA), all cases were 3D pre- operative planned and 72 patients (12%) required a custom implant due to femoral torsional abnormalities, coxa vara and narrow femoral canals amongst the indications.
