Application: Systems and methods for surgical planning of arthroplasty procedures (Patent ID: US20240050155A1)

The patent filed by Stryker Corp describes a method for planning an arthroplasty procedure on a patient bone using a computer system. The method involves accessing generic bone data, modifying it based on medical imaging data of the patient bone, determining the location of non-bone tissue data, and superimposing implant data to define a resection of the arthroplasty target region. The patent also includes a computing device for natural alignment knee replacement analysis, which generates bone data for the patient femur, calculates resection data based on implant and bone data, and outputs a three-dimensional knee replacement surgery plan for implantation. The device considers various factors such as knee joint alignment, femoral shaft axis, and patient attributes to customize the surgical plan and select the appropriate implant.

The computing device is capable of generating individualized knee replacement guides based on the recommended surgery plan, utilizing medical imaging data such as MRI or CT scans. It also allows for the selection of implants based on patient-specific characteristics and facilitates the alignment of resection guides during arthroplasty surgery. By correlating registration surfaces on the patient femur with the resection data, the device ensures a precise and planned resection of the bone, ultimately improving the accuracy and effectiveness of knee replacement procedures.
