The ­need of vis­u­al­ize in ­the ­three dimen­sions ­the ­osseous struc­ture of ­the max­il­lo-­facial dis­trict ­led to a con­tin­u­ous ­research ­for ­new meth­ods ­able to con­val­i­date ­the clin­i­cal diag­no­sis ­and to ­make easi­er ­the plan­ning of sur­gi­cal ther­a­py in ­patients ­who ­had trau­mat­ic frac­tures of ­the ­upper max­il­la. The qual­ity of ­the sur­gi­cal ­results of ­this ­kind of ­patient is ­indeed con­di­tioned by ­the pos­sibil­ity of vis­u­al­iz­ing pre­sur­gi­cal­ly ­the spa­tial dis­tri­bu­tion of ­the ske­let­ric struc­ture inter­est­ed by ­the frac­ture pro­cess. Moreover, ­the pos­sibil­ity of sim­u­lat­ing ­the oper­a­tion on ­the sol­id rep­li­ca ­allows to ­reduce ­its dura­tion. Aim of ­this ­work is to ­present a clin­i­cal ­case of mul­ti­ple frac­tures of ­the max­il­lo-­facial dis­trict ­due to a trau­mat­ic ­event ­and to ana­lyze ­the qual­ity of a meth­od of sol­id recon­struc­tion, ­the ­PSM, ­used in ­the pre­sur­gi­cal plan­ning of ­this ­patient.
