Several authors, who investigated patient-specific
aneurysm models with regard to intra-aneurysmal flow patterns, identified risk factors for future rupture, but the results are inconsistent.
By simulating brain activity within each patient-specific
network, they successfully identi-fied regions that were more prone to seizures.
The Materialise Knee Guide System, which consists of 3-D surgical planning software and patient-specific
surgical guides for knee surgery, allows surgeons to plan knee surgeries based on the patient's unique anatomy and structural damage.
In addition, the company s patient-specific
cardiovascular anatomical models can be used to enhance planning in complex procedures.
reported a voluntary recall of specific serial numbers of patient-specific

Given that iPS cells can be made in a patient-specific
manner, there should be great potential for them to be transplanted back into the same patient without rejection.
They discuss alignment and malalignment, its assessment, and frontal, sagittal, and rotational alignment; finding anatomical landmarks in the normal and arthritic knee; biomechanics; the impact of the foot on weight-bearing alignment; the intra-articular impact of extra-articular alignment deformity; navigation in arthroplasty; Mimics software; patient-specific
instruments; MRI and CT-based cutting and pinning guides; kinematically-aligned arthroplasty with MRI-based cutting guides; individualized total knee arthroplasty; unicompartmental arthroplasty with patient-specific
