The use of computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing in oral and maxillofacial surgery is an ever-growing field.The availability of 3D models, cutting guides, and customised surgical instruments gives surgeons the opportunity to modify and improve their surgical procedures.Here, we discuss the use of computer-aided design-computer-aided manufacturing to improve the management of a case of nonsyndromic metopic synostosis through the construction of: A cutting guide for the cranium, custom-made orbital protectors, a 3D model of the predicted postoperative meninges to allow off the table bone recontouring, and a template frontal bar to allow more specific recontouring of the frontal bar.

Various animal models mimicking craniosynostosis have been developed, using mutant zebrafish and mouse. The aim of this paper is to review the different animal models for syndromic craniosynostosis an...
To compare the effectiveness of a custom-made skills simulator (CMSS) with the commercially available da Vinci skills simulator (DVSS) that help improving surgical skills for effective and safe roboti...
Craniosynostosis has a known association with rickets. Due to abnormal bone development and a tendency for rickets patients to present at an older age than most craniosynostosis patients, repair may b...
The purpose of this article is to describe my institution's experience using a black bone sequence (a 3D low flip angle gradient-echo MRI sequence) in children with craniosynostosis and present our MR...
Distraction osteogenesis has gained popularity in the treatment of different types of craniosynostosis. We aimed to present the technique of 1-piece fronto-orbital distraction with midline splitting o...
Vacuum-formed retainers are clear or transparent retainers, that hold the teeth in the new position after active orthodontic treatment. These custom made appliances are becoming popular th...
Excessive foot pronation has been recognized as being linked to chronic low back pain (CLBP). The use of compensating custom-made foot orthoses has not been entirely explored as an effecti...
The purpose of this study intend to evaluate the effectiveness of functional orthoses (including custom-made insoles and shoes) for preventing and controlling repetitive haemarthrosis in p...
The purpose of this evaluation is to receive the greatest benefit of new custom made hearing product technology and shell modification for the end customer and to continual improve the cus...
The primary objectives of this study are - to procure human temporalis muscle, subcutaneous adipose (fat), and bone tissue samples from children with craniosynostosis, - ...
Three-dimensional representation to show anatomic structures. Models may be used in place of intact animals or organisms for teaching, practice, and study.
The process of generating three-dimensional images by electronic, photographic, or other methods. For example, three-dimensional images can be generated by assembling multiple tomographic images with the aid of a computer, while photographic 3-D images (HOLOGRAPHY) can be made by exposing film to the interference pattern created when two laser light sources shine on an object.
A ready-made or custom-made prosthesis of glass or plastic shaped and colored to resemble the anterior portion of a normal eye and used for cosmetic reasons. It is attached to the anterior portion of an orbital implant (ORBITAL IMPLANTS) which is placed in the socket of an enucleated or eviscerated eye. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
Theoretical representations that simulate the behavior or activity of biological processes or diseases. For disease models in living animals, DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL is available. Biological models include the use of mathematical equations, computers, and other electronic equipment.
An autosomal dominant aneurysm with multisystem abnormalities caused by increased TGF-BETA signaling due to mutations in type I or II of TGF-BETA RECEPTOR. Additional craniofacial features include CLEFT PALATE; CRANIOSYNOSTOSIS; HYPERTELORISM; or bifid uvula. Phenotypes closely resemble MARFAN SYNDROME; Marfanoid craniosynostosis syndrome (Shprintzen-Goldberg syndrome); and EHLERS-DANLOS SYNDROME.
Dentistry is the study, management and treatment of diseases and conditions affecting the mouth, jaw, teeth and their supporting tissues (Oxford Medical Dictionary) The work of a dentist ranges from regular patient check-up to orthodontics and surgery....
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
