Custom Titanium Chest Implants

Reconstruct after thoracic surgery

Working with thoracic surgeons, Anatomics has developed a novel and innovative custom titanium implant to reconstruct central chest wall defects after a wide resection (of tumour) that includes the sternum. The implant is derived from the patient’s own CT scan to accurately contour the chest and meet the resected rib ends.
