DePuy Synthes (part of J&J) is now offering a complete package solution for creating customized ortho implants for maxillofacial reconstruction surgery.
TRUMATCH CMF allows creation of computer simulations of the implants and discussion with the design team before the the implants are created. Additionally, surgical guides and occlusal splints are provided specifically for each patient’s unique anatomy and surgical need.
Here are the components of TRUMATCH CMF, according to the company:
Pre-operative Planning Services
The company’s ProPlan CMF®, a virtual surgical planning service, provides 3D visualization of individual patient anatomy, helps surgeons identify potential surgical challenges, and simulates various approaches to skeletal osteotomies for harvest and relocation sites and reconstruction.
Experienced clinical engineers work with surgeons in live interactive sessions to assist in the development of a comprehensive pre-operative plan with objectives to optimize surgical time, reduce the number of procedural steps and achieve desired results. Anatomic bone models may be created from original patient CT scans or to the planned outcome, to provide tactile representation and to enhance patient communication.
DePuy Synthes CMF uses 3D printing, a type of additive manufacturing by which a digital file is translated into a physical object by a 3D printer to create patient-specific surgical guides and occlusal splints. This enables transfer of the preoperative plan to the operating room, potentially reducing OR time and assisting in the placement of implants.
Customized craniofacial implants are derived from patient CT data to enable a better anatomic fit and lessen operating time when compared to conventional reconstruction methods that require extensive contouring.
