Materialise 3D printed titanium maxillofacial implants will soon be listed in the United States
American patients will soon benefit from Materialise's impressive series of 3D printed titanium maxillofacial implants, which will be distributed by Johnson DePuy Synthes. TRUMATCH implants are customized according to the patient's specific requirements and are already available in other parts of the world. DePuy Synthes, a subsidiary of Johnson, will sell the implants from mid - September.
Orthognathic surgery is a special feature of Materialise. The Belgian company provides these 3D printed titanium implants based on the CT scan of the patient's skull, and is part of a holistic solution. The overall solution also includes the virtual surgery plan and the 3D print surgical guide. The seamless integration of different parts of the surgical process is a real boon for the medical profession, simplifying treatment and making treatment cheaper and more effective.
Since its debut in 2016, TRUMATCH implants have been a major success in the European and Australian markets. Dr. Schouman Thomas CMF Piti Salp of the French surgeon tri Re Group Hospital said: "for seven years, I personally experienced the benefits of 3D printing implant. They simplified maxillofacial surgery, allowing me to perform surgery more accurately, reducing surgical time and improving surgical outcomes. In addition, they offer new treatment possibilities that allow me to perform more complex surgery or multiple surgeries in a single intervention; without these 3D print implants, I need to intervene several times.
