3D Printed Temporal Bone as Dissection Tool
3D Printed temporal bone is used as a teaching model for explaining intricate anatomical details of the temporal bone externally as well as internally. As the bone holds hearing as well as balance apparatuses of the body along with many other important nerves and blood vessels compactly arranged in very small space, the anatomical layout of all these needs to be learnt in details before proceeding for surgery on a live patient. This bone is also useful as a dissection tool. Students can practice various surgeries on this bone like mastoidectomy, facial nerve surgeries, translabyrinthine approach to an internal acoustic canal, cochleostomy, endolymphatic sac surgery, lateral sinus decompression etc.
