Reconstructions maxillo-faciales : apport de la CFAO à la qualité de vie des patients

Abstract : Functional reconstruction of large maxillofacial defects has long been a surgical challenge. Due to poor results of the free non vascularized flap and mandibular reconstruction plates, the development of microsurgery has grown considerably. While the free vascularized flap has become the most popular choice, the precision for the reconstructions of defects has developed thanks to Computer-Aided design / Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM). Despite a lot of advantages (precision, design and predictability), some disadvantages may persist (cost, pre-surgical delay or useless implants). The question is, is CAD/CAM a crucial tool in patient’s quality of life for maxillofacial surgery and maxillofacial prosthetics ? This systematic review is based on current knowledge and showcases the lack of homogeneity in the research. This lack of homogeneity is due to the large number of objective and subjective measures available as well as a lack of standardization of tools, such as questionnaires and test that are available to measure Health Related Quality of Life before and after the surgery.
