Polyurethane Foam-Filled Skull Replica of Craniosynostosis for Surgical Training.


Craniosynostosis has a relatively low incidence in the general population and its treatment requires cautious approaches. For these reasons, patients are usually referred to several specialists or a medical center. Therefore, most trainees and young surgeons do not have any chances to experience patients of craniosynostosis, but learn about it only from textbooks. And for a surgeon who tries to operate on a craniosynostosis patient, it is hard to make a proper preoperative plan.The authors suggest a polyurethane foam-filled skull replica of craniosynostosis for trainees that can also be used in planning a craniosynostosis operation.
