3D Technology at Apollo hospitals helps doctors to perform another rare surgery

Specialist Doctors at Apollo Hospitals, Jubilee Hills, led by Dr. Rajeev Reddy, Consultant Orthopedic Onco-surgeon and Sarcoma Specialist, Apollo Hospitals; salvaged a completely mutilated ankle joint by a giant cell tumor. They implanted a metal talus designed to precision using the latest state-of-the-art 3D modelling technology. The novel 3D technology enabled to recreate the exact replica of the patient’s ankle joint from the MRI scan and optimized the surgery with minimal harm to the tissue and surrounding organs.

The 29 year old male patient presented himself with a compliant of left ankle pain. He had a history of previous surgery around left ankle for a bone tumor called the giant cell tumor. After clinical examination and imaging, it was diagnosed to be a lapse of Recurrent giant cell tumor of left talus, the bone which forms the lower part of the ankle and distal tibia, the lower part of the long bone which connects knee with the ankle.

The imaging indicated complete destruction of the talus. Giant cell tumor is a rare but aggressive non-cancerous tumor and usually develops near a bone joint. These tumors mostly occur in long bones of legs and arms in young adults after bone growth ceases. 2 – 5 % of the giant cell tumors can be malignant, however in the case of this patient it was benign.

The cause for the giant cell tumors to grow is unknown yet. These tumors do relapse and as of today there is no Medicare to prevent recurrence.

3D Technology & More Info

As the tumor was present in two bones connected through the ankle joint, specialists devised a complex surgical plan. The distal tibia required extended curettage and sandwich reconstruction. Since the talus was almost completely destroyed by the tumor, a metal talus was the option to replace it and restore functionality.

However, measuring the exact dimensions of the mutilated talus to design accustomed metal replica was a challenge. It was overcome by capturing the MRI and CT images of the talus on the patient’s right leg and later a 3D metal model was designed for the left talus.

The metal talus with precise dimensions was made by the in-house 3D printing team and group of engineers at Apollo hospital, Jubilee Hills. This advance 3D technology is available at very few centers in the world and is of immense value in performing complex surgeries. The fact that every single detail is planned under one roof, ensures patient’s comfort and safety, which we at Apollo hospital are very keen about, says Dr. Rajeev Reddy.

The patient was discharged on the 3rd day of surgery, as he had recovered. He is currently undergoing rehabilitation and is expected to have a very satisfactory function and gait, in due course. However, he needs to be cautious, as the tumor can relapse, though chances are slim and needs medical monitoring at regular frequency.
