Clinical care is customization. The in industry proven possibilities of 3D (scan, visualisation and printing) technologies provide the possibilities for patient-specific medical planning and treatment.

3D technology in healthcare has a lot of potential, however successful implementation is still at a very early stage. After a number of initial cases, in collaboration with Saxion FabLab Enschede, Medisch Spectrum Twente acknowledges the added value of the application of 3D technologies, as witnessed by the establishment of a medical 3D lab inside the MST.

In this presentation the approach and experiences of implementing 3D technologies in clinical care will be presented in co-presentation with specialists of the MST.

Implementation of personalized 3D models in education of brain tumour patients – Presented by Mark ter Laan, Radboudumc Nijmegen

Implementation of personalized 3D models in education of brain tumour patients – Presented by Mark ter Laan, Radboudumc Nijmegen at the 3D Medical Conference, which takes place on January 30-31, 2019, at MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands.

Background
Patient centered communication is fundamental in order to empower patients towards better insight, shared decision making and coping with disease. Especially oncology patients need to be fully informed about treatment options, risks and outcome probabilities. Yet, many patients experience communication difficulties during consultation with their neurosurgeon. While patients find it hard to understand radiological images of their tumor, surgeons struggle to clearly explain the surgical plan and risks to patients. The use of tactile and visual 3D-models might improve knowledge and insight for patients.

Design and characterization of a novel 3D printed pressure-controlled drug delivery system – Presented by Julius Krause, University of Greifswald

Design and characterization of a novel 3D printed pressure-controlled drug delivery system – Presented by Julius Krause, University of Greifswald, at 3D Medical Conference 2019

The aim of the present work was to explore the feasibility of 3D printing via fused deposition modeling (FDM) in the manufacturing of a pressure-controlled drug delivery system.

Eudragit® RS, a brittle polymer with pH-independent solubility, was chosen to be a suitable excipient for the 3D printing of a pressure-sensitive, capsule-like dosage form.

A self-constructed piston extruder was used for hot melt extrusion (HME) of filaments made from Eudragit® RS that could be used for 3D printing.

Accuracy of 3D printed models – Presented by Sohaib Shujaat, KU Leuven

Printing has revolutionized the dental industry during the past decade and become an integral part of digital dentistry. However, little is known about the accuracy of the 3D printed models.

The aim of the presentation is to evaluate the objective accuracy of 3D printed models using various materials and printers. I will share the findings related to the accuracy of 3D printed models of teeth, impacted third molars, cortical and medullary bone.

Need a new skull or mandible? 3d print it! – Presented by Jules Poukens, University Hasselt & Leuven

Need a new skull or mandible? 3d print it! – Presented by Jules Poukens, Cranio-maxillofacial Surgeon, Zuyderland Medical Center / The Netherlands, Lecturer-Researcher, University Hasselt and Leuven, Belgium, at the 3D Medical Conference 2019.

Patients in the cranio-maxillofacial clinic often present with serious, complex, and potentially life- threatening or life-limiting medical conditions (e.g. tumor, trauma, aggressive osteomyelitis). Available treatments may not always give satisfactory results for patients and doctors. Therefore, complex problems ask for new solutions.

An emerging technique in the medical field is Computer Aided Design (CAD) , Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) by 3D printing. For successful implementation of CAD-CAM technology in the clinical practice doctors, dentists and engineers need to work together and share their expertise.

This intense cooperation leads to 3D printing of custom patient specific implants. 3D printed implants are used for the treatment of skull defects, temporo-mandibular joint replacement and world’s first 3D printed entire mandible replacement implant.

Clinical cases will be highlighted. Continue reading “Need a new skull or mandible? 3d print it! – Presented by Jules Poukens, University Hasselt & Leuven”

Designing biomaterials for tissue regeneration – Presented by Sandra Camarero-Espinosa, MERLN Institute for Technology Inspired Regenerative Medicine, at the 3D Medical Conference, on January 30-31, 2019, MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands

On the past decades materials sciences have experienced a boom with increasing knowledge being generated on nanotechnology and on the control and design of materials properties. Despite the great advances in the field and the exploitation of this knowledge in applications such as electronics, optics, photonics and drug delivery systems, little has been translated into tissue engineering (TE) applications.

Reactive Inkjet Printing of Functional Silk Micro-motors – Presented by David Alexander Gregory, The University of Sheffield

Reactive Inkjet Printing of Functional Silk Micro-motors – Presented by David Alexander Gregory, The University of Sheffield, at the 3D Medical Conference, on January 30-31, 2019, MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands

At present many small-scale stirring methods require external actuation, which can be cumbersome. Stirring small volumes of solutions can for example reduce immunoassay readout time. Here, we demonstrate the use of reactive inkjet printing to produce autonomously rotating biocompatible silk-based micro-stirrers capable of enhancing fluid mixing. Two types of propulsion mechanisms are discussed producing rotary motion. Either by release of a surface-active agent resulting in Marangoni effect driven motion, or by catalytically powered bubble propulsion. Marangoni driven devices do not require any additional chemicals to aid propulsion, whereas catalytically powered devices are powered by the decomposition of substrate molecules into the bulk solution. The surface tension driven motors also display great sensitivity to fluid properties and thus the devices show great potential for sensing applications, such as water pollution sensors.
