Etiology

Anaplastology Awareness Month 2020


A patient's condition indicating the need for anaplastology services can originate from: accidentent-related or traumatic injuries; congenital conditions; or disease, such as cancer.


Loss of anatomy may be caused by traumatic injuries or workplace accidents. Partial hand and foot prostheses restore the anatomy and can improve grip and balance.









Congenital syndromes that may cause craniofacial differences include, but are not limited to: •Microtia (shown here) •Treacher Collins Syndrome •Goldenhar Syndrome •Cleft lip and palate


Breast cancer patients may undergo a mastectomy, which results in surgical removal of the breast tissue. Custom breast prostheses are a non-invasive alternative to breast reconstruction that can restore the chest profile after mastectomy.
