3D Printing Quickens Craniomaxillofacial Tumour Surgery

3D Printing Quickens Craniomaxillofacial Tumour Surgery

3D printing transforms reconstructive operations and significantly reduces surgery time, Stratasys Ltd demonstrates how.

3D printing solutions by Stratasys Ltd used by the University Hospital Birmingham in England is delivering improved outcomes for head and neck cancer patients, with the institute reporting reduced surgery times by up to three hours through the use of tailored, 3D printed cutting guides.

This 3D printing success is attributed to the integration of a Stratasys J5 MediJet™ 3D printer that enables the hospital to create highly accurate, patient-specific cutting guides ahead of operations, transforming the way tumors are removed from head and neck cancer patients. Previously, these would have been created by cutting and bending a piece of metal by hand while the patient was on the operating table, resulting in a time-consuming process with a large margin for error.

Surgical Precision With 3D Printing Technology

Using 3D printing, the surgical team can now produce highly accurate devices using patient scans, with a resolution of within 150 microns, helping to support surgical outcomes. These are produced in Biocompatible Clear MED610™; a rigid, transparent resin suitable for applications requiring long-term contact (more than 30 days) with intact skin and limited contact (up to 24 hours) with tissue, bone or mucosal membranes.
