3D4Med and Stratasys will discuss how 3D printing can become a systematic part of everyday hospital life with multiple uses such as support for planning surgical and interventional procedures, preoperative training and simulation, informed consent, and training and development of new medical devices and instrumentation.
3D Printing can help surgeons to improve existing procedures or to create innovative approaches. In this study, we show how a 3d printed anatomical model can support neurosurgeons to plan a complex craniectomy  for cerebral bone tumor resection.
This study aimed to improve pre-operative planning using a novel approach with 3D patient-specific models reconstructed from MRI or CT images.
3D printing has become a well-known tool in the medical world, as demonstrated by the growing number of examples of its use. In this event, 3D4Med and Stratasys will show how 3D printing can become a systematic part of clinical-surgical applications with multiple intended uses: surgical planning support, preoperative training and simulation, patient informed consent, and education.
The Urology Department of Fondazione IRCCS Policlinico San Matteo requested 3D4Med support for the production of two 3D printed models for surgicalplanning and anatomical comprehension. Both clinical cases regard patients referred to Fondazione IRCCS Policlinico San Matteo for kidney cancer. Patients underwent a kidney tumors' enucleation procedure and the 3D printed models were used to better understand the tumors' positioning and degree of infiltration.
