Case Study 14

Ear prosthesis

Situation:

Patient was unhappy with the prosthesis he had obtained from an NHS unit.

Solution:

A cast was taken of the patient’s other ear and modified for digital scanning.
The scan was then inverted, printed and remolded to make a wax copy which was in-turn adjusted and used as the basis of a new prosthetic.

Case Study 10

Nasal prosthesis

Situation:

Patient suffered from a carcinoma of the nose.
Standard implants could not be used in this case due to the location and the need for radiotherapy.

Solution:

A silicon prosthesis, attached magnetically to an acrylic substructure, was fitted.
The magnetic attachment significantly increases the life of the prosthesis as well as making it much easier to fit and maintain.
