Industry resolution|Advantages of 3D Printing in Medical Field

As a cutting-edge technology in the world, 3D printing has been applied more and more in the medical field. Because of the insufficient organ donation and serious rejection after the operation, the traditional medical methods have been unable to meet the requirements of patients who need organ transplantation, for example, the heart transplant and different fractures. And 3D printing can perfectly copy the structure of the human body and fit the ergonomics. The application of 3D printing in this field is very considerable. Before using 3D printing, surgeons only rely on experience and computer images to understand the operation process.
 
The 3D printing solution can help optimize the preoperative preparation and enhance the accuracy and efficiency of the operation. The model based on the pathological structure of patients was used to improve the clinical results.
 
 
With the help of scanning equipment and the printing model, the treatment plan can be improved before the operation. which means that some organs and structures of the human body can be printed by a 3d printer for observation. The real physical model has many advantages, such as the solid, space, touch and so on. It can help to optimize the preoperative preparation, simulate a large number of living tissues, enhance the doctor’s confidence and shorten the operation time.
 
 
The printed model can simulate soft tissue, muscle, cartilage, bone and so on. Transparent materials can also be used to provide a panoramic view of hidden tissues and blood vessels. So the doctor can customize surgical instruments according to the patients' pathological structure.

 

 

There are numerous successful cases of 3D printing in the medical field abroad. In the future, the printed skin, bone, internal organs, and other organs will be widely used in clinical practice, benefiting more patients, especially those who need organ transplantation, and will benefit from 3D printing technology.
