• 3D Printing to simulate Choledochal Cyst Surgery

    With the help of 3-D Printing, researchers are now able to simulate laparoscopic surgery of choledochal cyst removal model. Under the supervision of 10 delegates, researchers at King's College Hospital, London, this method saw its first trial. The procedure involved a complex series of digital hepatic anatomy images and standard laparoscopic trainer dimensions.

  • Orthopaedician shifts from virtual model to 3d prints

    Boyd Goldie, an orthopaedic doctor in london, has started working with Ultimaker 2+, a software that converts medical scans to printable models. This free open software adds to the charm of 3D printing of the models, which help the doctor to get most of this technology.

  • London to see first consumer 3D printed Wheelchair

    London studio Layer has unveiled it's 3D printed Wheelchair that is set to go practical. This Wheelchair is made after taking exact dimensions of seats and footrests, while also account for weight of customer. It will take 2 weeks to be create this customized wheelchair.

  • 3D Printing helps toddler survive Adult Kidney Transplant

    This was the first time a child received an adult kidney transplant, thanks to 3D Printing technology. Surgeons at London's Guy and St.Thomas hospital used 3D printed models of abdomen of Lucy, 3 year old receiver, and kidney of Lucy's father aged 35 years. Looking at the models, they knew how to minimise the risk of surgery and what was exactly going to happen, with both having perfect recovery now.

  • Gamer gets a Cyborg 3D Printed Arm

    After meeting a horrible accident with a train, James Young, 22 year-old from london, lost his arm just to get a bionic arm for himself. This 4.5kg Cyborg arm, inspired from character Snake of game Metal Gear Solid, is multi-function with some being as battery power at backpack, mood lightings and laser torch.

  • 3D Printing the entire Jaw

    3D Print Entire Jaw

    Josh Stephenson, a graphic designer underwent surgery to remove his left eye, upper left jaw and the roof of his mouth after failure of radiation treatment for malignant melanoma. Using a 3D-scanned and printed copy of Stephenson's skull and scapular bone, Andrew Dawood, a dentist with Dawood and Tanner, recreated his entire jaw.

  • Bio-Glass Cartilage that Grows

     Bio Glass Cartilage that grows

    Scientists from Imperial College London and the University of Milano-Bicocca have developed a material that can mimim Cartilage and potentially help it to re-grow. Consisting of silica and a plastic or polymer called polycaprolactone, this Bio-glass has cartilage-like properties including being flexible, strong, durable and resilient and planned for replacing damaged cartilage discs between vertebrae.

  • SLA 3D Printer is worth manufacturing Oral Tablets

     SLA 3D Printed Oral Tablets

    Researchers from the University College London’s School of Pharmacy have concluded that 3D Printers using Stereolithography (SLA) technology are most viable and potent for manufacturing oral tablets for prescription drugs. This will allow them to keep the drugs contained with the “solidified matrices” thus reducing degradation and enhancing drug action.

  • Advanced 3D Camera Technology assists Heart Bypass Surgery

     3D Camera Technology for Heart Bypass Surgery

    Doctors at King’s College Hospital in London, UK have begun exploring using 3D imaging to perform more complex surgeries laparoscopically. Thoracoscope, a tool with two cameras is used for Endoscopy Assisted Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery, however, it has been used for minor surgeries like gall bladder and prostate operations so far.

  • Live Surgery for Cancer With 3D Printing Technology Viewed by International Live Broadcast

     Live Surgery for Cancer with 3D Printing Technology gets viewed by International Live Broadcast

    Patient Robert Begent was treated with Kidney Transplant last year at Guy’s and St Thomas Hospital in London by Professor Prokar Das Gupta, a consultant urological surgeon at Guy’s and St Thomas. The surgery was aided by 3D Printing Technology in form of 3D Printed model. And this live surgery was recorded, which was shown at Worldwide Robotic Surgery 24-hour event by Worldwide Robotic Surgery Education (WRSE) recently.

  • Researchers Use 3D Printing & Cryogenics to Develop Replicas for Tissue-Regeneration

    Researchers Use 3D Printing Cryogenics to Develop Biological Replicas for Tissue Regeneration

    Researchers from Imperial College London (ICL) have developed new 3D Printing Technique to create biological replicas for tissue regeneration. In collaboration with Kings College London, they experimented with 3D Printing and Cryogenics using solid Carbon Dioxide (dry ice) to quickly cool down hydrogel ink and Ultimaker 3D Printer. Once the ink softens, it forms a gel as soft as human tissue, which was then seeded with Dermal Fibroblasts with success.

  • Researchers Study Malaria Through Inexpensive 3D Printed Membrane Feeder

    Researchers Study Malaria Through Inexpensive 3D Printed Membrane Feeder

    A group of researchers from Imperial College, London is studying how malaria is transmitted, which requires mosquito test subjects to be infected with Plasmodium gametocytes – the blood stage parasites that actually cause malaria. In a Standard Membrane Feeding Assay (SMFA) test, an artificial membrane feeding apparatus, which simulates the host’s skin and body temperature, is used to get the mosquitoes to eat reconstituted blood containing the gametocytes. The researchers created the two-part membrane feeder design using the free, open source CAD modeling program Art of Illusion, then had Shapeways 3D print the parts out USP VI medical-grade “Fine Detail Plastic” acrylic resin (VisiJet M3 Crystal).

  • Study Reviews Possible Outcomes Of 3D Printed Acetabular Cups

    Study Reviews Possible Outcomes Of 3D Printed Acetabular Cups

    A Research in London was done on Titanium Acetabular Cups made through 3D Printing comparing the designs of different 3D printed cups from multiple manufacturers which included: Delta TT (Lima Corporate, Italy) – 3D printed with electron beam melting (EBM), starting from Ti6Al4V powder; Trident II Tritanium (Stryker, USA) – 3D printed with laser rapid manufacturing (LRM), using titanium-aluminium-vanadium alloy (Ti6Al4V) powder and Mpact 3D Metal (Medacta, Switzerland) – 3D printed with electron beam melting (EBM), starting from Ti6Al4V powder. They were found to have beads, a known by-product of the manufacturing process, which may potentially be released in the human body.
