3D Printed Patient Specific Acrylic Cranial Prosthesis in Decompressive Carniectomy
Features : " e-Auction Description of Work : 3D Printed Patient Specific Acrylic Cranial Prosthesis in Decompressive Carniectomy " e-Auction Type : NonExclusive " e-Auction Number : NE/KIHT/20067 " TRL : 8 " Base Price : 490000.00 " e-Auction Date / Time : 30-11-2018 16:03 " Patient-specific cranioplast for decompressive craniectomy with the following attributes: " 3D printing of patient-specific cranial model to precisely delineate the defect site facilitating restoration of cosmetic symmetry in appearance-sensitive areas. " Simple fabrication approaches to obtain patient-specific acrylic bone flap with residual porosity. " Eto-sterilised, customised, contoured implants. " Ongoing clinical trials could not reveal any post-operative complications related to infection, allergy, hematoma/seroma, or cerebrospinal fluid leak Need & Demand : " There is a high unmet need for this patient specific prosthesis in neurosurgical procedures and lowering the cost will facilitate affordable healthcare. 3D inkjet allows patient-specific implant fabrication at physiologically relevant conditions. Market Access Information : " According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the rate of traumatic brain injuries is significantly increased over the span of last six years, which increased the hospitalizations by nearly 47%. " The global cranial implants market is expected to grow for 3D printing/modeling at Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 5.53% during the period 2017-2021. Future Developments : " To establish patient safety and to evaluate clinical efficacy of 3D printed cranial prosthesis in multicentric trials, involving more human subjects with craniectomy defects (Phase II trial).
