Considerations in Treatment Planning for Implant-Supported Auricular Prostheses
Watson, Roger M. / Coward, Trevor J. / Forman, Geoffrey H. / Moss, James P.
Improvements in planning for the provision of silicone auricular prostheses have been achieved with CT scanning. The analysis of information using a computer workstation has enabled preoperative determination of skull thickness and position of implants in relation to the proposed location of the prosthesis. The technique is of particular value in cases of craniofacial microsomia.
