In ‘Evaluation of Local Tissue Reaction After the Application of a 3D Printed Novel Holdfast Device for Left Atrial Appendage Exclusion,’ researchers from Poland begin to experiment even further with…

Stanford University Researchers Create Better Cardiac Catheter Devices with 3D Printing

The heart disorder atrial fibrillation, or AFib, is the most common rhythm disorder, and causes patients to have irregular, often rapid heartbeats, which messes up blood flow from the heart…

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…

Materialise and Henry Ford Health System Partner to Advance 3D Software in Cardiac Procedures

So many conditions can affect the heart, and whether the condition is rare or common, everything is serious when the heart is involved. One of the more common conditions of…

Heart in Hand, Henry Ford Health System Leads the Way in Cardiac 3D Printing

While we’re a long ways off yet from 3D printing organs for transplant, today’s reality is seeing 3D printed hearts saving patient lives in plastic. The structural heart team at…

3D Data Shows What Makes the Heart Beat – in High-Resolution Detail

I’ve often read the phrase “my heart skipped a beat” in novels where it was used to describe a giddy, romantic feeling. I understand what authors are going for, but…
