Clinical cases

Cardiology

3D printing provides a concrete and precise reproduction of the morphological and pathological aspects of the heart chambers.

Cardiosurgery

Multi-material 3D printing technology enables the tuning of deformability and transparency features.

Thoracic surgery

Morphological abnormalities and pathologies interesting the cardio-pulmonar and mediastinic system are often highly complex not clearly visible on CT images.

Otolaryngology & Maxillo-Facial Surgery

Temporal bone 3D printed models can be used by surgeons to properly plan the placement of hearing aids and prosthesis.

Orthopedics

Most of the anatomical models relate to fractures (e.g. pelvis or heel fractures and spine trauma) and bone cancer.

Vascular surgery

3D printing provide a concrete and precise reproduction of the morphological and pathological aspects of a vascular lesion.

Abdominal surgery

Our 3D printed models are widely used at IRCCS Policlinico San Matteo of Pavia to plan several surgical procedures.
