Finite element analysis of Craniomaxillofacial and Plastic Surgery

FEA & CFD Based Simulation Design Analysis Virtual prototyping MultiObjective Optimization

Enteknograte engineers have development FE models of both craniomaxillofacial and plastic surgery reconstructive procedures including:

  • Evaluation of wound closure forces and tissue strains for plastic surgery
  • Finite element modeling tool development for surgical planning and preparation
  • Analysis of bone stress and resorption surrounding dental implants
  • Development of models to analyze fracture fixation and healing for craniomaxillofacial applications
  • Qualitative evaluation of the risk for implanted device migration in soft tissue

FDA submissions require a comprehensive audit trail which includes:

  • Records of all simulation data
  • Revision management and control
  • Correlation with physical test results
  • Proven repeatable methods
  • Software version tracking

To ensure confidence in the simulation and reliability of the analysis results, medical device manufacturers must ensure that the CAE analyst is using the most current CAD geometry, specify the correct material properties, and apply the appropriate environmental loading conditions. They must also create the proper mesh type and size, record the version of the analysis software, and correlate results with physical test data. These criteria must be preserved and managed for FDA compliance purposes and for the benefit of enhanced enterprise productivity.

Enteknograte offers a Virtual Engineering approach with CFD and FEA tools such as Ansys Fluent, StarCCM+  for flows simulation and FEA based Codes such as ABAQUS, Ansys, Nastran and LS-Dyna, encompassing the accurate prediction of in-service loads, the performance evaluation, and the integrity assessment including the influence of manufacturing the components.
