Rehabilitation of the Nose Using CAD/CAM and Rapid Prototyping Technology After Ablative Surgery of Squamous Cell Carcinoma: A Pilot Clinical Report

Leonardo Ciocca, DDS, PhD/Francesca De Crescenzio, I E, PhD/Massimiliano Fantini, Mech E, PhD/ Roberto Scotti, MD, DDS


PMID: 20657878

Restoration of a nasal defect after ablative surgery for squamous cell carcinoma necessitates replacing the missing volume and anchoring a prosthesis to the patient’s face. This report describes the failure of plastic reconstructive surgery after ablation of a squamous cell cancer of the nose and the esthetic and functional restoration of the patient with a nasal prosthesis. The process of making an implant-supported prosthesis using digital technology, including digitized anatomic models from a “nose library,” and the rapid prototyping of the mesiostructure for bar anchorage and of the mold for silicone processing are presented.

Key words: computer-aided design, computer-assisted manufacture, maxillofacial prosthesis, nasal prosthesis, rapid prototyping
