The combination of High Definition Medical Imaging, rapid manufacturing and associated patient specific implant technologies is a rapidly expanding field with wide application potential in challenging reconstructive, distraction and orthognathic cases. Typical applications include the making of three-dimensional (3D) models for treatment planning, the production of intraoperative surgical guides and splints to guide the surgeonís reconstructive efforts and the fabrication of customized implants to match the patientís anatomy. Using intuitive, easy to follow steps, ProPlan CMFô software will be used to demonstrate the workflow in the evaluation of the patientís anatomy (preparation of the 3D virtual model), performance of measurements, segmentation and mirroring, simulation of segmental resections and planned osteotomies. The presentation will illustrate how, based on the specific patient plan, surgical guides and splints are then designed and produced for an accurate transfer to the surgery. Sample cases will include the use of titanium patient specific plates (PSP) that are designed (virtually) and matched to the patientís anatomy to reconstruct defects and provide fixation for bone-containing flaps used to restore form and function. The product theater session will demonstrate the use of state of the art software/hardware tools and workflow of computer assisted treatment planning in craniomaxillofacial reconstructive surgery. This will be illustrated with challenging cases from the presenterís practice, enabling the participants to further their understanding of the versatility of these techniques and how they can positively affect surgical outcomes.
