Title: METHOD FOR PROVIDING SUB-ELEMENTS OF A MULTIPART IMPLANT OR A MULTIPART OSTEOSYNTHESIS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for providing sub-elements of a multipart implant or a multi-part osteosynthesis prior to introducing same into a human and/or animal body, having the following steps: A) detecting data (110) of a patient for whom the implant and/or the osteosynthesis is intended; B) generating a model (120) using the detected data; C) generating manufacture specifications for at least two or more sub-elements which can be combined so as to form an implant and/or an osteosynthesis on the basis of the generated model, said manufacture specifications comprising C1) a dimensioning of the sub-elements (130); and D) manufacturing (180) the sub-elements on the basis of the manufacture specifications, wherein the sub-elements can be assembled together so as to form an implant or an osteosynthesis. The invention also relates to a multipart implant and/or a multipart osteosynthesis.
