3D4Med joined the II International Conference on Simulation for Additive Manufacturing – Sim-AM 2019 that will take place on 11th – 13th September 2019 in Pavia.

3D4Med anatomical models for surgical planning and simulation has been exposed during the congress.

Prof. F. Auricchio will attend the 106th National Congress SIOeChCF (Società Italiana di Otorinolaringoiatria e Chirurgia Cervico Facciale) that will take place on 29th May – 1st June 2019 in Rimini.

The panel discussion will focus on recent innovations in Otolaryngology, Oncology & Reconstructive Surgery, Maxillo – Facial Surgery and will highlight the advent of new technologies in these fields.

Prof. Auricchio will present 3D4MED Lab and the possible applications of 3D printing technology for the surgical planning, training and simulation in Otolaryngology & Maxillo – Facial Surgery.

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

The meeting “Stellate Ganglion Block. New Frontiers in the Treatment of Cardiac Arrest with Refractory Ventricular Fibrillation” will take place on January 30th, 2019, at Policlinico San Matteo of Pavia, in collaboration with the Clinical 3D Printing Laboratory 3D4Med.

3D4Med supports the training on this innovative treatment through the manufacturing of 3D printed phantoms, able to reproduce the echogenicity of the tissues of interest.


Free admission, no registration required.



The patient-specific model represents the pancreatic-duodenal tract with its arterial and venous vessels. The model was useful for the surgical planning of an intervention of total mesocolic excision in right hemicolectomy. The vessels’ structure and morphology which characterizes the pancreatic-duodenal tract is particularly complex, thus the 3D printed model has allowed a better and easier visualization.


Surgical Procedure: Total mesocolic excision in right hemicolectomy

Clinical Specialty: Abdominal Surgery

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

Technology: Material Jetting

Material: VeroCyano, VeroMagenta

The book “3D printing in complex vascular disease“, by Prof. Enrico Maria Marone and Prof. Angelo Argenteri, has been published by Edizioni Minerva Medica and it is available at the publisher’s website. The book contains two chapters on 3D printing technologies and materials, written by Prof. Ferdinando Auricchio, Dr. Stefania Marconi and Prof. Michele Conti.
