|Official Title:||Computer-Assisted Versus Non-Computer Assisted Preoperative Planning of Corrective Osteotomy for Extra-Articular Distal Radius Malunions: A Multi-Center Randomized Controlled Trial|
|Study Start Date :||August 2010|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||December 2017|
Active Comparator: Control
Surgery without computer-assisted planning.
Procedure: distal radius osteotomy
In this control group, the planning and surgical execution of the distal radius osteotomy will be performed as usual, without computer-assisted planning of the osteotomy.
|Experimental: Computer-Assisted Surgical Planning||
Procedure: Computer-Assisted Surgical Planning
Using a CT reconstructing of affected distal radius and the normal contralateral limb, surgical guides for the osteotomy will be created to assist with surgical planning.
