Study Confirms Effectiveness of 3D Modeling and 3D Printing in Prevention of Heart Valve Complications

Study Confirms Effectiveness of 3D Modeling and 3D Printing in Prevention of Heart Valve Complications

For the millions of people diagnosed with heart valve disease every year, there are a few options for treatment. These include open heart surgery, but some people are considered too high-risk for such a procedure. For these people, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has become the go-to treatment. This less-invasive procedure involves inserting a prosthetic […]

Rice University Students Develop 3D Printed Training Models for Cervical Cancer Screenings

Nearly 300,000 women die of cervical cancer every year. That’s a sobering global statistic, but even more sobering is that the large majority – about 85 percent – of those deaths occur in developing countries, where adequate detection and treatment methods are not readily available. These deaths would be preventable, if only these countries had […]

New 3D Printed Organ Models Don’t Just Look Like Real Organs, They Feel and React Like Them Too

New 3D Printed Organ Models Don’t Just Look Like Real Organs, They Feel and React Like Them Too

There is plenty of evidence to show that 3D printed anatomical models greatly improve the outcomes of medical procedures. When surgeons can plan and practice an operation on a perfect 3D printed replica of a patient’s organ, surgeries tend to take less time, as does recovery. But there are still limitations to the 3D printed […]
