Kidney transplant using 3-D printing marks a medical first in Belfast
from 3D Printing Industry
A 3-D printed replica kidney, from UK-based 3D printed medical model company axial3D, has facilitated a crucial transplant operation and simultaneously improved the life of the organ donor. Surgeons at Belfast City Hospital in Northern Ireland planned the complete excision of a Bosniak 2F renal cyst using a kidney replica. The operation itself was the first such procedure performed without the need for revision surgery in Ireland.
