3D Medlab will be present a maxillary oncologic reconstruction case
What drives you?
The using of 3D printing benefit to the patient, not just only for the technology . The medicine is a global engineering , biomechanic, material, safety , risk management ….
Why should the delegate attend your presentation?
We will do, not only scientific presentation, but we will share the rôle and the contrainte of 3D printing to optimize the using and to present that is a industrial solution .
What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
In a short time, is lattice topologic design , to optimize the biomechanical fonction and durability of the implant, in a long time is tissue reconstrctuion base on 3D polymer to prevent a implant using.
What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
The main impact is to optimize the implant performance, and finally the social cost.
What are the barriers that might stand in the way?
Regulatory, safety politic, validation time.
