Abstract

© 2016 Sociedad de Cirujanos de Chile Aim Introduction of three-dimensional printing technology for the generation of medical rapid prototyping models, an assistant tool in surgical planning of mandibular tumors. Clinical case We report the case of a 30-years-old female patient who presented an anterior mandible mass with 2 years of evolution. Incisional biopsy confirmed ossifying fibroma. With the assistance of three-dimensional printing technology, 3D model was created and surgical planning was performed with the design of osteotomy sites for mandibular resection. Furthermore, prebending of reconstruction plate based on 3D model was accomplished. The protocol for rapid prototyping models creation in details is described in this article.
