In-house manufactured PEEK cranioplasty implants – initial experience from Skåne University Hospital

Point of care produced implants hold great promise to improve patient care. Skåne University Hospital has recently implanted the first 3D printed implants that have been designed and manufactured on site. As far as we know this is the first time in the world where the entire process from scanning, design, manufacture, and post-processing are performed solely at the point-of-care and by the hospital. In the first part of the presentation, we will present the initial experience including technical aspects and regulatory challenges. In the second part of the presentation, we will give a live demonstration of the patient-specific implant design process.
