Quantification of contralateral differences of the scaphoid: a comparison of bone geometry in three dimensions


Letta, Claudio; Schweizer, Andreas; Fürnstahl, Philipp (2014). Quantification of contralateral differences of the scaphoid: a comparison of bone geometry in three dimensions. Anatomy Research International, 2014:904275.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to accurately quantify contralateral differences of the scaphoid in three-dimensional space to evaluate the feasibility of using the healthy contralateral bone as a reconstruction template in the preoperative planning of complex mal- or nonunions. Three-dimensional surface models of the left and right scaphoids were reconstructed from computed tomography images and compared in 26 individuals. Left-right differences were quantified with respect to volume, surface area, length, and surface-to-surface deviation. The average left-right differences in volume, surface area, and length were 95.4 mm(3) (SD 66.2 mm(3)), 32.7 mm(2) (SD 22.9 mm(32)), and 0.28 mm (SD 0.4 mm), respectively. The average surface-to-surface deviation between the sides was 0.26 mm (SD 0.2 mm). High statistical correlation (Pearson) between the left and the right side was found in all evaluated measures.
