  • 3D-printed patient-specific instruments have become a useful tool to improve accuracy in pelvic tumour resections. However, their correct placement can be challenging in some regions due to the morphology of the bone, so it is essential to be aware of the possible placement errors in each region. In this study, we characterize these errors in common pelvic osteotomies.
