Transforming Cranioplasty with 3D Printing

Cranioplasty is the surgical fix of a bone imperfection in the skull that is left behind after a past operation or accident. A bone graft from elsewhere in the body or a synthetic material may be used to repair defects or gaps in the cranial (skull) bones.

Procedure

Designing of missing part

Missing part of the skull is designed by CAD Modelling softwares by taking the mirror image of the other side.
