Purpose Three-dimensional (3D) printing plays an important role in the diagnosis and treatment planning of many elective procedures in oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS). 3D printers and the associated print materials are now within the price range of most maxillofacial units, requiring less work to be sent out to commercial printers. Whilst their use in the planning of elective procedures is commonplace, acute trauma is an area where 3D printing remains underutilised. The successful… Expand

TLDR
3D printing protocol was applicable and rendered favorable outcomes in the acute midface trauma setting, and proper understanding of the steps involved in achieving the stereolithic model is key for the adaptation of 3D printing to the current management of acute midfaces trauma. Expand
