This paper addresses an important issue raised for the clinical relevance of Computer-Assisted Surgical applications, namely the methodology used to automatically build patient-specific finite element (FE) models of anatomical structures. From this perspective, a method is proposed, based on a technique called the mesh-matching method, followed by a process(More)
A Finite Element model of the face soft tissue is proposed to simulate the morphological outcomes of maxillofacial surgery. Three modelling options are implemented: a linear elastic model with small and large deformation hypothesis, and an hyperelastic Mooney-Rivlin model. An evaluation procedure based on a qualitative and quantitative comparison of the(More)
The aim of the study was to implement a methodology to quantify in vivo and from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) the 3D geometrical properties of intervertebral discs (IVDs) in early idiopathic scoliosis with small curves. MRI data were posttreated using a custom-made image processing software to semiautomatically determine the location of disc centres,(More)
In pathophysiology and clinical practice, the intracranial pressure (ICP) profiles in the supratentorial and infratentorial compartments are unclear. We know that the pressure within the skull is unevenly distributed, with demonstrated ICP gradients. We recorded and characterised the supra- and infratentorial ICP patterns to understand what drives the(More)
Exophthalmia is characterized by a protrusion of the eyeball. The most frequent surgery consists in an osteotomy of the orbit walls to increase the orbital volume and to retrieve a normal eye position. Only a few clinical observations have estimated the relationship between the eyeball backward displacement and the decompressed fat tissue volume. This paper(More)
This paper proposes a computer-assisted system for the surgical treatment of exophthalmia. This treatment is classically characterized by a de-compression of the orbit, by the mean of an orbital walls osteotomy. The planning of this osteotomy consists in defining the size and the location of the de-compression hole. A biomechanical model of the orbital soft(More)
