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.
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. On the other hand, DePuy Synthes CMF uses 3D printing 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.
