3-D Printing Is Transforming Care for Congenital Heart Disease
May 1, 2018
(Medical Xpress) – In cardiovascular 3-D printing, the 3-D model is a replica of a patient’s anatomy. These models may be used for precise pre-surgical planning and simulation. This may potentially reduce time spent in the operating room and result in fewer complications. According to the review, 3-D printing also has the potential to bring transformative change in the education and training of physicians. This technology may lead to an educational shift from an apprenticeship model to a simulator-based learning method that augments traditional mentored training.
