ASSIS, Gleysson Matias de et al. Stereolithographic modeling technology applied in mandibular reconstruction: a case report. Rev. cir. traumatol. buco-maxilo-fac. [online]. 2010, vol.10, n.3, pp. 013-018. ISSN 1808-5210.

Several images are needed in oral and maxillofacial surgery to evaluate pathologic lesions for the purpose of diagnosis and treatment. In surgery of the facial region imagenology provides useful tools for obtaining an effective treatment plan, that is one that achieves the reestablishment of form and function without recurrence. In the present study a rapid prototyping model (PM) was employed. On the basis of a clinical case, the advantages of using PM are discussed, highlighting a number of aspects such as predictability, duration of surgery, control of the condyle, and facial symmetry among others. This paper reports a clinical case of a patient with a benign tumor on the posterior region of the jaw which was excised by resection with a loss of jaw continuity associated with a primary reconstruction using autogenous bone. The PM biomodel was used to help in decision making pre- and transoperatively. The patient is well with no signs of recurrence 3 years after surgery.
