  • Korean Surgeons Develop Guides for Removing Cancer & Rebuilding Jawbone at Same Time

     South Korean Surgeons develop 3D Printed Guides for removing Cancer Rebuilding Jawbone at same time

    A team of researchers at Samsung Medical Center announced that they have a successful method for using 3D printing to rebuild the jawbones of oral cancer patients. Led by Professor Baek Chung-hwan of the department of otolaryngology, the medical team created a 3D printed surgical guide that allows them to rebuild areas of the jaw as well as eliminating areas that are ridden with cancer. The team was able to perform surgery and reconstruction all at once, using the new bone made from the patient’s leg bone, fibula.

  • Researchers Suggest 3D Printing For Rhinoplasty Better Than Traditional Methods

    Researchers Suggest 3D Printing For Rhinoplasty Better Than Traditional Methods

    Researchers at Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) are working on improving the Rhinoplasty, a surgery of nose resconstruction, with the help of 3D Printing. Using the facial editing software to plan the surgery, and then converiting it to files for modeling and 3D Printing, followed by filling of hydrogel with patient’s cells and injecting into 3D Printed nasal implant. This whole process offers advantages such as shorter, comfortable and streamlined procedure with much accuracy in hand.

  • 3D Printing The Realistic Custom Eye Prosthetics

    3D Printing The Realistic Custom Eye Prosthetics

    A Team led by Professor Yoon Jin-sook from Severance Hospital, South Korea worked on 3D Printing Custom Eye Prosthetics on a large scale by solving the production cost and time. Following the scan of patient’s eye and conversion of data into STL file, the Eye were 3D Printed using Carima DS131 and Biocompatible Photopolymer Resin (FotoTec DLP.A, Dreve Inc.). To give them much realistic look, the Sublimation Transfer Technique was used to print the image of the iris and blood vessels on the 3D-printed ocular prosthesis.

  • Korean Researchers Deliver New Endoscope-Assisted Spine Surgery System Using 3D Printing

    Korean Researchers Deliver New Endoscope Assisted Spine Surgery System Using 3D Printing

    Researchers from Seoul, Korea, worked towards using 3D Printing to enhance Spine Surgeries by creating a new Endoscope-Assisted Spine Surgery System involving combined cannula, featuring one cannula for the endoscope and the other for surgical instruments, with major and minor axis diameters of 10.34 mm and 9.16 mm, respectively. The creation of Test Spine Model involved: Create 3D Design from 2D data from MRI and CT scans; 3D Print spine components; Fabricate silicone molds with the 3D printed spine components; Make spine components with required properties and Assemble the patient-specific model. Imaging data was imported to slicing software, with models then 3D printed on a Creatable D3.

  • German Scientists 3D Print Microscaffold Cochlear Implant Using Nanoscribe

    German Scientists 3D Print Microscaffold Cochlear Implant Using Nanoscribe

    An international Team of Bioengineers from the Bio-Microrobotics Laboratory of the Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) partnered with the Ajou University and Microsystems Lab of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), using the Nanoscribe Photonic Professional system to create microstructure scaffolds for the Cochlear implant. Accompanied by a high-precision 3D printed steroid reservoir with a 2D MEMS-based electrode array, the medical device- “Germany’s Nanoscribe” is meant to allow patients to hear better—and by avoiding insertion trauma, preserves what hearing ability they still possess. The implant is designed to reduce the damage of residual hearing against electrode insertion trauma.
