Background: Surgical accuracy in minimal incision foot surgery is an unexplored field. Optimal gateways and more precise surgical processes to the patients' biomechanical problems must be determined. The purpose of this study is to compare the deviation between the position of the osteotomies virtually planned and the position of the osteotomies made by means of the 3d printed surgical guides for a human cadaver foot.Methods: A left cadaver foot was scanned by means of a CAT scan and, by means of software; a virtual surgery was carried out by positioning the cutting guides. The virtual preoperative tomography was compared to the postoperative tomography and measurements were made during the CAT scans. The data were analyzed with a t test (alfa=0,01).Results: The average differences of measurement between the osteotomies planned by computer and the osteotomies of the surgery were 0.0613 (99% CI: -0,42 -0,42).Conclusion: The results showed that statistically there is no significant difference between virtual and post-surgical osteotomies.
