On September 14, the renowned Journal of Neurosurgery published a case report of a patient operated at Uppsala University Hospital in June 2017. As reported previously in Swedish media, the case involved removal of more than 70% of the patient’s cranium, which was replaced by a specially engineered implant from OssDsign who also designed complex drawing guides and an advanced pre-planning kit for the optimal surgical outcome. 6-month post-operative follow-up of this near-total cranioplasty showed a good cosmetic outcome, an increase in the intracranial volume of 17.1%, and no clinical signs of infection.

OssDsign’s CEO Anders Lundqvist says:

“We are extremely thankful to play a part in making a difference for this patient’s life. The successful outcome of this case represents an example of effective collaboration between the clinical team and OssDsign, working jointly on the pre-operative planning to ensure the optimal solution for the patient in a challenging case such as this.”
