Design and Manufacturing Process of Skull Defect Prosthesis
We want to help to the technical preparation of the implantation of individual prosthesis by using the newest means of computer aided manufacturing. There are such cases when the factory-made implantations available are not suitable to replace the missing bone or joint. We have solved the replacement of an osteal skull defect with the Rapid Prototyping method in this paper. The advanced techniques has assured greater accuracy and simpler operative-technique in this case.
