Table 1 Overview on the advantages and disadvantages using 3D planning and patient-specific instruments with the here-described technique

From: Correction of complex three-dimensional deformities at the proximal femur using indirect reduction with angle blade plate and patient-specific instruments: a technical note

Advantages Disadvantages
↑ Deformity understanding ↑ Costs
Individual planning ↑ Time for planning
Limited exposure due to guidance Minimally invasive techniques not yet available
Simple deformity correction using indirect reduction technique
