As the most advanced technology in the world, 3D printing has been used more and more in the medical field. Due to the lack of organ donation and severe rejection, traditional medical methods can not meet the needs of patients who need organ transplantation, such as heart transplantation and different fractures. 3D printing can perfectly copy the human body structure and conform to the ergonomics. The application of 3D printing in this field is very important. Before using 3D printing, surgeons only rely on experience and computer images to understand the operation process.
3D printing solutions can help optimize preoperative preparation and improve the accuracy and efficiency of surgery. The model based on the patient's pathological structure was used to improve the clinical effect.
With the help of scanning equipment and printing model, treatment plan can be improved before operation. This means that some organs and structures of human body can be printed by 3D printer for observation. Real physical model has many advantages, such as solid, space, contact and so on. It can help optimize preoperative preparation, simulate a large number of biological tissues, enhance doctors' confidence and shorten the operation time.
The printed model can simulate soft tissue, muscle, cartilage, bone, etc. Transparent materials can also be used to provide a panoramic view of hidden tissues and blood vessels. Therefore, doctors can customize surgical instruments according to the pathological structure of patients.
There are many successful 3D printing cases in foreign medical field. In the future, printed skin, bones, internal organs and other organs will be widely used in clinical practice, which will benefit more patients, especially those who need organ transplantation, and will benefit from 3D printing technology.
