How 3-D printing improves surgical outcomes

from By Renee Eaton

Recently, an acquaintance underwent what was expected to be a routine ablation procedure — nearly 10 hours later, the surgery finally finished. Despite CT scans, X-rays and EKGs, the surgeons encountered "structural issues" that complicated the operation. If they'd had a 3-D print of his heart, they might have anticipated and planned contingencies based on what they saw. For this reason, more surgeons have begun using patient-specific models to plan surgeries. This enables surgeons to reduce the time spent in the operating room — and more importantly — increases the surgeon's accuracy. more
