Article
Full-text available
Craniosynostosis must often be corrected using surgery, by which the affected bone tissue is remodeled. Nowadays, surgical reconstruction relies mostly on the subjective judgement of the surgeon to best restore normal skull shape, since remodeled bone is manually placed and fixed. Slight variations can compromise the cosmetic outcome. The objective...
Article
Current approaches for surgical correction of craniosynostosis are highly dependent on the experience of the surgeon and inaccuracies during cranial vault remodelling can compromise the surgical outcome. The objective of this study is the evaluation of a novel augmented reality system to guide surgeons during fronto-orbital advancement procedures....
Article
PurposeSurgical correction of metopic craniosynostosis typically involves open cranial vault remodeling. Accurate translation of the virtual surgical plan into the operating room is challenging due to the lack of tools for intraoperative analysis of the surgical outcome. This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility of using a hand-held 3D photograp...
Article
Full-text available
Augmented reality (AR) can be an interesting technology for clinical scenarios as an alternative to conventional surgical navigation. However, the registration between augmented data and real-world spaces is a limiting factor. In this study, the authors propose a method based on desktop three-dimensional (3D) printing to create patient-specific too...
Article
Image-guided interventions enable the surgeon to display the position of instruments and devices with respect to the patient’s imaging studies during surgery by means of a tracker device. Optical trackers are commonly chosen for many surgical applications when high accuracy and robustness are required. OptiTrack is a multicamera optical tracker who...
Article
Full-text available
This work analyzed the use of Microsoft HoloLens 2 in orthopedic oncological surgeries and compares it to its predecessor (Microsoft HoloLens 1). Specifically, we developed two equivalent applications, one for each device, and evaluated the augmented reality (AR) projection accuracy in an experimental scenario using phantoms based on two patients....
Article
Full-text available
Image-guided surgery, prosthetic-based virtual planning, 3D printing, and CAD/CAM technology are changing head and neck ablative and reconstructive surgical oncology. Due to quality-of-life improvement, dental implant rehabilitation could be considered in every patient treated with curative intent. Accurate implant placement is mandatory for prosth...
Article
Full-text available
Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma is a rare and aggressive tumor representing less than 1% of head and neck cancers. This malignancy often arises from the minor salivary glands, being the palate its most common location. Surgical en-bloc resection with clear margins is the primary treatment. However, this location presents a limited line of sight and a high...
Article
Full-text available
Patient-specific instruments (PSIs) have become a valuable tool for osteotomy guidance in complex surgical scenarios such as pelvic tumor resection. They provide similar accuracy to surgical navigation systems but are generally more convenient and faster. However, their correct placement can become challenging in some anatomical regions, and it can...
Article
Full-text available
Background: The surgical correction of metopic craniosynostosis usually relies on the subjective judgment of surgeons to determine the configuration of the cranial bone fragments and the degree of overcorrection. This study evaluates the effectiveness of a new approach for automatic planning of fronto-orbital advancement based on statistical shape...
Article
Full-text available
Surgical interventions for musculoskeletal tumor resection are particularly challenging in the pelvic region due to their anatomical complexity and proximity to vital structures. Several techniques, such as surgical navigation or patient-specific instruments (PSIs), have been introduced to ensure accurate resection margins. However, their inclusion...
Article
Full-text available
Deep learning is a recent technology that has shown excellent capabilities for recognition and identification tasks. This study applies these techniques in open cranial vault remodeling surgeries performed to correct craniosynostosis. The objective was to automatically recognize surgical tools in real-time and estimate the surgical phase based on t...
Chapter
Full-text available
Current approaches for the surgical correction of craniosynostosis are highly dependent on surgeon experience. Therefore, outcomes are often inadequate, causing suboptimal esthetic results. Novel methods for cranial shape analysis based on statistical shape models enable accurate and objective diagnosis from preoperative 3D photographs or computed...
Article
The real degree of constriction of rotating hinge knee (RHK) and condylar constrained prostheses (CCK) is a matter of discussion in revision knee arthroplasty. The objectives of this study are to compare the tibial rotation of both implants and validate the use of inertial sensors with optical tracking system as movement measurement tools. A total...
Conference Paper
Evaluation of an automatic workflow for the intraoperative assessment of the surgical outcome during craniosynostosis reconstruction surgery. Our framework is based on the automatic registration of intraoperative 3D photographs using 3D printed color markers attached to the bone surface. 3D photographs are acquired using a hand-held structured ligh...
Article
Augmented reality (AR) has great potential in education, training, and surgical guidance in the medical field. Its combination with three-dimensional (3D) printing (3DP) opens new possibilities in clinical applications. Although these technologies have grown exponentially in recent years, their adoption by physicians is still limited, since they re...
Conference Paper
Evaluation of intraoperative 3D photography for outcome quantification in craniosynostosis reconstruction surgery.

The World Health Organization recommends a rate of cesareans inferior than 15%. However, the actual rates in the US double this value, while the use of obstetrical instruments, a recommended alternative to cesareans but which requires high skill and experience, has significantly decreased in the latest years. In this context there is a clear demand...
