Patient specific mandible implant

Customised design and development of patient specific 3D printed whole mandible implant Mazher I. Mohammed, Angus P. Fitzpatrick, Santosh K. Malyala, Ian Gibson In this study we assessed the design criteria for the creation of a patient specific, whole mandible implant based on a patient’s medical imaging data and 3D printing. We tailor this procedure […]

Custom implants in craniofacial surgery

3D modeling, custom implants and its future perspectives in craniofacial surgery Dr. Jayanthi Parthasarathy, Dr, Plano Annals of Maxillofacial Surgery Custom implants for the reconstruction of craniofacial defects have gained importance due to better performance over their generic counterparts. This is due to the precise adaptation to the region of implantation, reduced surgical times and […]
