Thanks to new developments in the field of 3D printing, surgeons have been able to use 3D-printed templates for correction osteotomy of the distal radius; recently, 3D-printed titanium implants, tailor-made for patients, have been introduced. This technique makes it possible to fix the bone elements in an anatomical position when performing a correction osteotomy in patients with complex malunions of the distal radius. In this article we discuss this new technique and illustrate it through presentation of a case.
