The doctors at the Poltava Regional Hospital performed surgery on a soldier who had a complicated fracture of both forearm bones and a 10 cm defect in the radius bone. The patient underwent reconstructive surgery using an individualized 3D modeling technique.

Suspilne reports this.

According to Oleksandr Bubyr, the orthopedic and traumatology department leader, a personalized plate was created for osteosynthesis, and any damaged fragments that could not be repaired were replaced with artificial material.

A military man over 50 years old underwent an operation after being shot in the forearm during combat.

The man underwent reconstructive surgery to restore damaged bones. The operation lasted about two hours.

"The preparation took approximately eight months. The patient received treatment in different stages, and we had to wait for the wounds to heal fully. Our hospital conducted a computer tomography test and shared the results with our colleagues. Using this data, our partners selected a personalized alloosteograft (bone graft) for the radius bone and created a customized 3D model of the damaged segment. They also designed an individualized 3D radial plate for specific osteosynthesis," Oleksandr Bubyr said.

The next stage of the patient's recovery is an individual rehabilitation course.
