3d printed model of the left atrium to plan atrial appendage closure in challenging anatomy

The patient-specific anatomical model is a 3D printed reconstruction in deformable material of the left atrium with a “chicken wing” appendage. The model has been useful to properly plan and simulate trans-catheter closure feasibility.

Surgical Procedure: Atrial appendage closure

Clinical Specialty: Cardiology

3D Printer: Objet 260 Connex 3 (Stratasys®)

Technology: Material Jetting

Material: TangoPlus
