Cranial implants

Overview

Cranial reconstructive surgery is primarily targeting to restore primary functions and the same time to preserve cranial anatomical features like symmetry and harmony. The cranial reconstructive surgery was one of the first areas where the 3D printed implants have been used in practice. Modeling has been used in cranial reconstruction of traumatic injuries, congenital disorders, orthogenetic surgery, tumor removal, and implantology. 3D printing greatly improves and enables preoperative planning, reduce operative time, and significantly improve the biofunctional and the aesthetic outcome.

Computer-aided design (CAD) used to generate 3D proposed implant has a major impact on success of cranio-maxillofacial (CMF) surgery, significantly improving efficiency, accuracy, creativity, and reproducibility. We care about each patient and provide end-to-end solution. Our highly skilled specialists will analyze 3D image data, design a 3D model of the implant and propose this model to doctors. After satisfying all patient-specific implants’ requirements and getting the approval from doctors we produce the final implant using advanced 3D printing or CNC machining technologies.

Cranial Implant

Process flow

CT or MRI scanning of the patient to get damaged or deformed bone(s).

Based on CT data the damaged bone and the part where the implant should be placed are being modeled.

The implant and the bone is being printed (plastic). The physical samples is provided to doctor. After feedback and correction the implant is being printed

The doctor has time for pre-operation training and optimization of the surgery process. Then surgery is being performed
