Abstract

This report describes the surgical reconstruction of a traumatic medial orbital wall blow-out fracture using an autologous calvarial bone graft modeled intraoperatively using a three-dimensional (3-D) fused deposition model of the fracture defect. Previous case reports have demonstrated the use of 3-D models in planning the surgical approach, selecting and fashioning the desired implant in the perioperative period, and even using models with sterile coverings intraoperatively to mold synthetic implants. This is an individually unique application of 3-D printing for the surgical repair of pure medical wall blow-out fracture.
