Multilevel Customized 3D-Printed Titanium Alloy Interbody Cages used to Treat Congenital Scoliosis: A Case Report – Lumbar Fusion

Day Case Lumbar Fusion Surgery

This article discusses the use of customized, patient-specific interbody cages in the treatment of spinal conditions such as neoplasia, degenerative disease, infection, congenital anomalies, and trauma. While previous studies have focused on the use of customized implants in a single spinal level, this article explores the utility of these implants in multiple spinal levels. The authors present two cases, one with a patient who underwent surgery using customized implants on multiple spinal levels and another with a patient who received standard titanium implants. The patient with customized implants reported improved back pain and independent ambulation at 1-year post-operative and did not require revision surgery, while the patient with standard implants required revision surgery 2 years post-operative. The suggests that customized implants may be beneficial for treating certain spinal conditions

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION: Customized, patient-specific interbody cages have been used in the treatment of spinal neoplasia, degenerative disease, infection, congenital anomalies, and trauma. However, to date, their use has been limited to a single spinal level, and the utility of customized spinal implants in multiple spinal levels remains unclear. In addition, limited studies exist that compare outcomes following fusion and decompression surgery using customized implants to traditional, standard implants.

CASE REPORT: We present two cases. Case 1 consists of a multilevel deformity surgery from L3-S1 ALIF and T10-Pelvis PSF in a patient with a congenital scoliosis (CS) using customized implants on multiple spinal levels. We compare Case 1 to Case 2, in which a patient underwent a lumbar decompression and fusion for CS using standard titanium implants. While the patient in Case 1 reported improved back pain and independent ambulation at 1-year post-operative and required no revision surgery, the patient in Case 2 required revision surgery 2 years post-operative due to pseudoarthrosis.
