Transcranial Orbital Reconstruction Using Patient-Specific Implant Prosthesis in Craniofacial Fibrous Dysplasia


Orbital reconstruction is a complex process which involves adequate reconstruction of the defect, proper anatomic and functional rehabilitation  of the orbital complex. We present a case of transcranial reconstruction of the superior and medial wall of the orbit secondary to resection of craniofacial fibrous dysplasia using a patient-specific 3D printed titanium prosthesis.
