Introduction: Medical Grade 3-D Printer.



Cranial implants are used to secure intracranial structures, reconstruct the skull contour, normalise cerebral hemodynamic, and repair cranial defects. Larger bone defects require intervention for repair from an implant made from autologous bone or other material.
To repair such defects using implants, materials necessitate biocompatibility with the natural bone.
Patient Specific Implants (PSI) are designed to repair specific cranial defects following standard procedures for implant design, fabrication and cranioplasty.
PSI manufactured implants using 3D Printing provide an ideal fitment, aesthetics, saving of time and cost and are also improved therapy success rates
