A unique Custom Surgical Solution involved a syndromic patient requiring a two-piece PEEK implant and 3D anatomical models. In this case, patient growth expanded the frontal and parietal bones, widening the frontal and sagittal sutures. By surgeon recommendation, a patient-specific PEEK implant was elected to fill the void and protect the patient’s brain.
Last December, the first AccuShape cranial implant was used to treat the stroke patient in Florida. The patient had a serious skull defect and required a cranioplasty. The patient-specific AccuShape PEEK plate was the first produced by MedCAD since the company received their 510k FDA approval in October.
