OBJECTIVE To quantify intrapelvic surface symmetry in reference to a pre-shaped suprapectineal acetabular implant. METHODS In this cross-sectional study, an anatomically pre-shaped acetabular fracture implant was fitted on 3D surface models of 516 pelvises from a pre-existing bone database using a software tool for automated implant fitting (SOMA, Stryker Orthopaedic Modeling and Analytics) of a CAD model of the implant. The distances between bone and the reference implant were measured at 2310 reference points for each hemipelvis. RESULTS The average distance between the left hemipelvis and the plate was 1.98 mm (median, 10% percentile: 1.45, 90% percentile: 2.78) and 2.0 mm (median, 10% percentile: 1.45, 90% percentile: 2.92) between the right hemipelvis and the plate. There was no significant difference between the two hemipelvises (medianabsolute pairwise delta: 0.25mm; 10% percentile: 0.04, 90% percentile: 0.82; Wilcoxon, p = 0.064). CONCLUSION With regard to the periacetabular surface of the inner pelvis, the pelvis can be considered sufficiently symmetric for using the mirrored contralateral hemipelvis as a template for patient-specific implants in acetabular fracture fixation.
