3D printing already has many applications in hospitals and medicine. But what does it actually mean for the hospital? It’s not just as simple as ordering a 3D printer and that’s it, you can start using it in the operating room.
It is a cross-sector multi-disciplinary complex situation, involving both medical and technical fields – design, new workflows, working with other professionals from different fields and more.

Biofabrication is a specific area within the field of tissue engineering which takes advantage of rapid manufacturing (RM) techniques to generate 3D structures which mimic the natural extracellular matrix (ECM). A popular material in this respect is gelatin, as it is a cost-effective collagen derivative, which is the major constituent of the natural ECM. The material is characterized by an upper critical solution temperature making the material soluble at physiological conditions. To tackle this problem, the present work focusses on different gelatin functionalization strategies which enable covalent stabilization of 3D gelatin structures [1, 2].

Oggi molte procedure come l’acquisizione clinica e la successiva elaborazione dei dati avvengono con procedure digitali.
Le tecnologie additive come la stereolitografia sono regolarmente utilizzate per costruire,da files digitali, non solo modelli, ma anche vari dispositivi ortodontici e protesici.
Anche la costruzione dei dispositivi ortodontici in metallo sta subendo una grande trasformazione grazie all’introduzione del Laser Metal Fusion.
La presentazione farà vedere come poter applicare queste tecnologie nelle comuni lavorazioni ortodontiche e anche le nuove applicazioni nel campo dell’ancoraggio ortodontico scheletrico.
3D Medlab is Start-Up partner of 3D Medical Conference & expo
About 3D Medlab
3D-Medlab is an engineering office specialized in supporting healthcare
professionals in the mastery of additive manufacturing.
Our activity is exclusively dedicated to the development of 3D printing
in the medical field.
It mainly concerns 3 sectors:
– Industrial (manufacturers of medical devices which are willing to
develop new product lines by additive manufacturing or which want to be
supported in the development of their 3D printing activity.
– Hospital (simulation centers, surgeons and healthcare establishments
which are wishing to integrate additive technology into their structure: to
develop anatomical models, customized cutting guides, adapted and / or
disposable instruments, customized implants)
– R & D: Research and studies of new materials and 3D manufacturing
processes for the development of innovative and futuristic medical devices.

Mitral endiocardiosis is an acquired pathology caused by the myxomatous degeneration of the mitral valve. This pathology is greatly diffused in canine species, especially in the adult-senior stages. It represents 70-80% of cardiac diseases in this species, impacting 100% of senior subjects.

The first free flaps jaws reconstructions were performed in 1980-1990 in oncologic patients. The importance of a correct surgery planning with a computer simulation of the bone flaps segments positioning was immediately clear.
The following step was the print and the intraoperatively use of custom-made devices as guides to faithfully reproduce the virtual reconstructive project.
