Presurgical finite element analysis from routine computed tomography studies for craniofacial distraction: II. An engineering prediction model for gradual correction of asymmetric skull deformities.

Abstract

Finite element analysis from routine computed tomography studies (CT/FEA) allows clinicians to predict the mechanical and anatomic consequences of specific distraction systems before human application. A realistic three-dimensional CT/FEA engineering model of an actual plagiocephalic infant with unicoronal synostosis was developed using 4215 parabolic… (More)
