Brief Summary:
This study proposes to develop a computer-based software tool that will allow surgeons to plan and simulate surgery for patients with jaw trauma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Maxillofacial Injuries Procedure: Surgical repair of maxillofacial trauma

Detailed Description:
The proposed tool will allow surgeons from different specialties to simulate, plan and iterate on complex procedures based on individual patient data in 3-D from a CT scan. The software will allow surgeons to both see and feel the results of their interventions - for example, the quality of the bite or bone alignment of a reconstructed jaw following severe trauma - before the actual surgery, leading to better planning, fewer errors, shortened surgery time and improved outcomes for the patients. The purpose of this study is the evaluation of a visuohaptic planning system for mandibular trauma surgery that is based on interactive manipulation of CT data.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Group 1
15 patients with maxillofacial trauma who underwent surgical repair at San Francisco VA Medical Center
Procedure: Surgical repair of maxillofacial trauma
Patients will undergo whatever needed surgical repair of maxillofacial trauma that is necessary. Records such as CT imaging and plaster models of the jaws will be utilized in the standard way to plan and carry out the surgery. The CT scan will also be used within the visuohaptic computational environment to develop and evaluate the user interface. The amount of time taken to work up and plan surgery using standard surgical practice and using the computational platform will be compared. Real surgical outcome will be compared to the simulated outcome using the proposed software tool.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Development and evaluation of the visuohaptic virtual surgery planning environment [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    Creation of the virtual surgical computational platform, allowing for manipulation of bony fragments on-screen


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Development and evaluation of automation features for the visuohaptic virtual surgery planning environment [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
  2. Implementation and test of the telemedicine prototype [ Time Frame: 3 years ]

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Study population will veterans who present to the Oral/Maxillofacial Surgery Clinic at the San Francisco VA Medical Center. The study will use pre-existing data from patients undergoing reconstructive facial surgery at the San Francisco VA with clinic indications that require preoperative CT scans and preoperative radiographs as well as model casts.
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Craniofacial deformity, including post-traumatic, congenital or acquired deformity
  • Patients who have already have surgery because there was a clinical indication for surgical correction

Exclusion Criteria:

  • No craniofacial deformity
  • No clinical indication for surgical correction
  • Contraindication for surgical correction
