The use of computerized three dimensional imaging and automated milling of models to produce accurate titanium plates for the reconstruction of craniofacial defects is described. A total of 148 patients have had extensive calvarial defects repaired using this (computer aided design and manufacture) technique developed in our unit. Of these, 141 were repaired secondarily (delayed cranioplasty), whilst seven were repaired immediately following craniectomy (single stage cranioplasty). All cases… CONTINUE READING
