Surgical Management of Craniofacial Defects with Implant-Retained Prostheses („Epitheses“)

Course information

Kaiserslautern, Germany
10 Participants

Dear collegues,


The first extraoral application of osseointegrated titanium implants for craniofacial defects dates back more than three decades. This event marked a great improvement in the management of craniofacial defects by bone-anchored craniofacial prostheses (“epistheses”). Since then, numerous efforts have been made to improve the applicability and outcome in adverse anatomical situations. One result of the evolutionary process was the development of the Epiplating system by Medicon eG in collaboration with Prof. P. Federspil, Ph. A. Federspil and M. Schneider. It basically consists of titanium miniplates adapted to the needs of anaplastology. Over more than 15 years, the Epiplating system proved to be very versatile, allowing to place implants in (almost) all defects.


The aim of this course is to give a very practical insight in the Epiplating system. To be as interactive as possible, we limited the number of course participants. Surgical approaches and implantation will be demonstrated in the Department of Anatomy. Moreover, you will assist surgical cases live in the OR next to the surgeon. Later in the dry lab, you will have the opportunity of bending and handling the plates yourself.


We would be very happy to welcome you in Kaiserslautern, Germany for this course!
