Outline of study: a 15-year-old patient presented with chronic groin and leg pain. The treating surgeon diagnosed the young man with slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) and undertook a percutaneous pinning procedure (placing an implant into the hip), halting the surgery due to difficulty with visualization of the leg bone structure and interpretation. The surgeon later returned the patient to the operating room (OR) for a second attempt which was also unsuccessful. These two failed surgical attempts involved significant doses of anesthetic and radiation.
Delaney’s special interest is the shoulder, which is the entire focus of her practice, and will work with PrecisionOS to develop advanced virtual reality (VR) training in this interest area.
InVisionOS is a next generation patient specific planning tool. InVisionOS software automatically converts the patient’s computed tomography (CT) scan from any PACS system into a 3D reconstruction within seconds. Surgeons can then use the Oculus Quest 2 to view, manipulate and isolate relevant anatomical areas prior to performing the actual surgical procedure.
