A 14-year-old male presented with pain and functional limitation of her wright shoulder. The patient presented to our Institute with a malunion of the proximal humerus. The radiographic studies demonstrated a malunion of the proximal humerus. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging were performed to further evaluate the anatomy. Because of his impairment, age, and deformity, a corrective osteotomy of the proximal humerus was planned. A 3D CT scan was used to fully analyze the deformity, allowing a simulated osteotomy to be performed. A custom-made guide was then designed in Laboratory of medical 3D-printing of SI "ITO NAMSU" to perform the osteotomy and to correct the deformity. Surgery was performed in at Department of microsurgery and reconstructive-recovery surgery of upper limb SI “The Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedics by NAMS of Ukraine”.
