Craniomaxillofacial surgeons typically rely on 2D patient scans, such as CT or MRI to aid in diagnosis and pre-operative planning
These commonly used 2D images make conceptualizing complex three-dimensional anatomical structures a difficult task for even the most experienced surgeon.
2D images can complicate pre-operative planning, leading to many complex surgeries being misdiagnosed or misplanned and millions of unnecessary hours spent in surgery.
These images can be hard for patients to decipher too, and surgeons will often have to resort to drawings and other tools to help the patient understand their diagnosis and to gain their consent to proceed with a planned surgery.
From planning to treatment – we make all cases patient specific
• Pre-operative planning
• Surgical simulation
• Intrateam discussions
• Gaining patient consent
• Reduced time and cost of surgery
Patient-specific craniomaxillofacial surgery is the future
“The 3D model aided preoperative planning and helped us determine the best treatment method for the patient and also assisted our explanation of the procedure to the patient. Having a 3D model of the anatomy helped with vector planning and enabled us to pre-operatively bend plates. Moreover, the print allowed us to place and bend distractors in a position to avoid damage to the unerupted and developing teeth.”
