The first free flaps jaws reconstructions were performed in 1980-1990 in oncologic patients. The importance of a correct surgery planning with a computer simulation of the bone flaps segments positioning was immediately clear.

The following step was the print and the intraoperatively use of custom-made devices as guides to faithfully reproduce the virtual reconstructive project.
In 1990 started the CAD-CAM (Computer-Aided-Design Computer-Aided-Manufactoring) era.

The possible role of 3D computed tomography models in Thoracic Surgery

Università degli studi di Perugia

by Professor Franscesco Puma, Chief of Thoracic Surgery Department. Full Professor in Thoracic Surgery, Università degli studi di Perugia

We present our experience in the use of the 3D computed tomography – based template in the surgical planning of complex procedures in Thoracic Surgery. We used this approach in two different clinical settings: Tracheal surgery and surgery for extended chest wall tumors.
In the latter, this approach made it possible to obtain an ideal customization of the chest wall prosthesis, precisely adapted to the postoperative defect of the chest wall.
The 3D model of the trachea, larynx and carina, allowed us to ascertain the extent of the presumed airway segment to resect and the possible need for additional surgical release maneuvers.
