3D printing, polymers in additive manufacturing, 3D design, surgical planning, personalized medicine
The use of 3D printing is a technology in increasing expansion in the area of the medical sciences We describe it the technical characteristics of 3D printing and a protocol of obtaining of models three dimensional as a complement to the imaging studies for the approach of complex injuries 3D printing of five areas of interest corresponding to vascular lesions spinal renal and pulmonary by additive manufacturing technique 1 75mm extrafill polylactic acid was used following the imaging method DICOM medical 3D reconstruction in format STL and G-code of each structure being carried out Ender-3 computer printing They were printed structures at a scale of 50-75 of the real volume with average processing time of 32 4 min This technology allows you to individualize care of patients with complex injuries raising the quality of medical services techers and decreasing the direct costs of care per hospital stay
