ABSTRACT: High precision anatomical facsimile models of the patient's skull, individually produced by stereolithography, have been used in the preoperative planning in 16 patients with acute craniomaxillofacial trauma. In late primary repair, when open reduction and internal fixation had to wait for a decrease in facial swelling or cerebral oedema, computer-aided surgery has proven to be useful in terms of facilitating anatomical reduction, minimizing surgical approaches, saving operating time and leading to improved postoperative results, which may reduce the number of secondary corrections of post-traumatic deformities.Journal of Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery 07/1998; 26(3):136-9.
