In preoperative planning for mandibular reconstructive surgery, it is necessary to determine the osteotomy lines for fibular shaping and the proper placement of fibular segments in the mandible. Although virtual surgical planning has been utilized in preoperative decision making, current software designs require manual operation and a trial-and-error(More)
OBJECTIVE This paper introduces methods to automate preoperative planning of fibular segmentation and placement for mandibular reconstruction with fibular flaps. METHODS Preoperative virtual planning for this type of surgery has been performed by manual adjustment of many parameters, or based upon a single feature of the reconstruction. We propose a novel(More)
This study was performed to quantitatively analyze medical knowledge of, and experience with, decision-making in preoperative virtual planning of mandibular reconstruction. Three shape descriptors were designed to evaluate local differences between reconstructed mandibles and patients' original mandibles. We targeted an asymmetrical, wide range of cutting(More)
This presentation introduces a new software design for virtual preoperative planning for free fibular transfer in mandibular reconstructive surgery. Direct volume resection and manipulation of superimposed fibular segments allow interactive editing of the surgical plan without the need for a surface modeling process. We also introduce three shape(More)
In this paper, we propose an automated preoperative planning method that estimates a plan fitted to the data of a new patient using a planned dataset of previous patients. Although mandibular reconstruction with fibular segments needs preoperative planning for the precise placement of segments, recent interactive planning software cannot secure objectivity(More)
