University of Alabama in Huntsville Students 3D Print Simulators for Nursing Training

A dilemma in medical training programs is how to train students to perform difficult medical procedures before they ever have to try them on a patient. No patient wants to be a training case, but hands-on experience is vital if a student is going to master a procedure. Medical programs will use simulators for students […]

Historic Surgery Uses 3D Printing to Remove Nearly 50 Tumors from Woman’s Uterus

A diagnosis of one tumor is bad enough – imagine being diagnosed with 50. That’s what a patient named Maureen was facing after suffering from abdominal pain for years. Her doctors told her that she had so many fibroids in her uterus that the only option would be to remove it in a hysterectomy. She […]

3D Printed Simulator Could Help Surgeons Prepare for a Rare and Complex Pediatric Surgery

3D Printed Simulator Could Help Surgeons Prepare for a Rare and Complex Pediatric Surgery

Premature infants can be afflicted with all sorts of life-threatening conditions; one of those is esophageal atresia, where the esophagus does not connect to the stomach. Instead, the upper esophagus abruptly ends, often as a small pouch. In other cases, the lower esophagus connects to the windpipe, creating even more complications. The latter condition is […]

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 […]
