Spine bent like shrimp -3D print doctor in minimally invasive therapy

Spine bent like shrimp -3D print doctor in minimally invasive therapy

Up to minimally invasive aneurysm surgery are not difficult, but for people with congenital scoliosis deformity of Mr JI, to minimally invasive but is a little difficult. Tongji hospital cardiac vascular surgeons using I3 pro 3D DIY printer technology “private ordering” abdominal aortic aneurysm model in vitro simulation of surgical procedures to assess risk and guide the choice of operative programmes, and eventually, the operation completed successfully.u=1983029241,343948943&fm=21&gp=0
Mr JI, 60, suffering from congenital scoliosis deformity, the most recent being diagnosed with an abdominal aortic aneurysm, but he refused to open surgery, adhere to the “minimally invasive”.
Mr JI with congenital scoliosis deformity, severely bent to one side of the spine and back bulges forward, hunched like a shrimp, belly bulge, also known as the “shrimp”. Scoliosis deformity would have pushed to increase abdominal u=2672345643,4043858355&fm=21&gp=0aortic aneurysm, caused further distortions has always been straight up and down form 3 in the abdominal aorta near 90 degrees turns, like a lying “s”.
Tongji hospital, cardiac vascular surgery chief physician Pan Youmin introduced techniques of minimally invasive endoscopic surgery itself is already very mature, for ordinary people, not so difficult, but 3 near-90 degree turns within the abdominal cavity in patients with minimally invasive surgery has become challenging.u=3118452222,3848563852&fm=21&gp=0
To reduce the risk, they use three-dimensional CT Imaging image information obtained, through 3D printing technology to restore the 1:1 true abdominal aortic aneurysm. Final operation successfully completed, currently Mr JI recovered well.
