Two critical factors at ortopedy and maxillofacial processes are; surgeon
patient relationship and determining the implant pre-counters precisely. It
will allow; direct communication with patient, informing the patient, letting
him take decisions regarding to his treatment in a better way, one to one
compatibility of the implant to the patient, reducing the operating time and
making the patient feel more comfortable on his following life. 3D physical
models are an invaluable tool in for both doctors and patients.
The ability to use models for pre-surgical planning
reduces operating room time, lowers cost, and enhances patient outcomes,
minimize errors and reducing recovery time.
Pre-Surgical Planning: Using medical models before the surgery will decrease
the operation time, operation costs, improve the results, decrease mistakes to
minimum and provides a fast recovery after the operation.
Examples of pre-Surgical planning
- Determine implant contours in advance
- Determine screw trajectory
- Selecting screw and location
- Choosing surgical tools
- Technical practice
