  • Create OP launches flexible 3D Printing System

    Lake Placid, New-York based Create Orthotics and Prosthetics is launching integrated medical grade 3D Printing system which allows clinical practitioners to design 3D Printed devices in their own clinics. Currently allowing eight unique devices, the cost has been reduced by 65% and works with Flexy Fit prosthetics filament for light weight devices.

  • Surgeons Develop Acrylic Based 3D Printed Mask for Facial Transplant Donors

    A team of 3D Printing experts at New York University (NYU) have started creating 3D Printed Masks for Facial Transplants Donors using accurate 3D Printing and Acrylic material. Since it is a tough decision to give up the face of deceased by family members, this 3D Printed Mask will encourage more people to agree to donate the faces of their dying family members for transplant purposes. Using Handheld Scanner to scan donor’s face, and then sending files to large 3D Printer, the final product is made using acrylic-based photopolymer.

  •  Identities of Dead Victims on US Mexico Border Reconstructed Using 3D Printing

    Migrants trying to cross US-Mexico border are often apprehended and lose their live during the effort, and over 1000 unidentified in Pima Country, Arizona, were recently found. However, using the 3D Printing Technology by FARO, a 3D tech company, a group of students led by Joe Mullins from New York Academy of Art, have been working to reconstruct skulls of 8 such men. Once the reconstructions are complete, they are photographed and entered into National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUS).

  •  Patients With High Risk of Atrial Fibrillation to Benefit From 3D Printed Occluder Device

    Researchers with Dalio Institute of Cardiovascular Imaging at New York are working to develop 3D printed, personalized soft LAA occluding devices that are customized to a specific patient’s anatomy. The team used CT images of a person’s heart and a CAD program to isolate the surface of the LAA with a 0.5 mm thick shell, adding a valve for inflation and mechanical stabilization to the design. The molds for occluder are then printed for casting and filling.

  • 7 Year Old Receives Surgery Planned Ahead Through 3D Printed Surgical Model

    7-year-old Isaiah Onassis Goberdhan, son of Barnaby Goberdhan had an aggressive tumor in his palate and nasal cavity and required surgery to remove it and approached Dr. Neha A. Patel, MD, Nortwell Pediatric Otolaryngologist at Cohen Children’s Medical Center. Working with Todd Goldstein, PhD, a Northwell Health Researcher, Dr. Patel create a personalized 3D rendering of Isaiah’s palate, using his CT and MRI scans and Formlabs technology was used to 3D print an anatomical model with the tumor, and one with it removed, in order to help the doctors and the family physically visualize the entire procedure ahead of time.

  • Bone Defects To Be Restored Through 3D Printed Ceramic Implants

    Researchers at New York University developing 3D Printed Ceramic Implants that dissolve slowly within the body, stimulating bone to grow in their place, thereby helping in restoring the bone defects that cannot be filled with allograft or autografts. The ceramic implant contains beta tricalcium phosphate, similar to components in natural bone, making the implants resorbable over time and are coated with dipyridamole, a blood thinning agent that stimulates bone growth and attracts bone cells to the implant.

  • Researchers Create Intravenous Transfusion Valve Compatible For Humans Using 3D Printing

    A group of researchers from Alfred State College, one of eight Colleges of Technology within the State University of New York (SUNY) system used 3D printing and SOLIDWORKS modeling to develop a novel, imprinted micro check valve for Intravenous Transfusions. Using a Form 2 3D Printer, they were able to print the parts modeled at SOLIDWORKS, which included Ball, Valve Inlet and Perforated Ring Outlet which was then coated with thin layer of parylene for safety in humans. The tests showed that the check valve design allowed for zero backward flow while also allowing flow through the device in the proper direction at a rate of 98.6 μl/sec

  • Formlabs Technology Used to Make 3D Printed Anatomic Models of Young Patients Palate and Nasal Cavity

    7-year-old, Isaiah Onassis Goberdhan was diagnosed with an aggressive tumor in his palate and nasal cavity that caused him breathing difficulties. Using Formlabs Technology, Neha A. Patel, MD, a Northwell pediatric otolaryngologist at Cohen Children’s Medical Center, was able to plan the surgery with 3D Printed anatomical model of Goberdhan using CT and MRI scans. Onassis Goberdhan has now successfully recovered without complications after the surgery planned with 3D Printing.

  • 4D Bioprinting Can Have Miraculous Potential In Regenerative Medicine

    Ramiah Martin, Susquehanna Valley, PA, was born with a rare medical condition called the Tracheal Agenesis, which left her without trachea and improperly formed esophagus. The doctors at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital used 3D Printing Technology to create a 3D Print Model of her esophageal passage and plan the surgeries ahead of time when she was 4 months old. Although she may require further interventions in future, the kid has been discharged with ventilator support at age of 13 months.
