3D Printing with High Perfomance Polymers for Implants and other Medical Products

stefan leonhardt

by Stefan Leonhardt, Kumovis

We at Kumovis developed a specialized 3d-printing system including clean-room technology. It is capable of processing high performance polymers like PEEK, PEKK, Ultem or PPSU. Furthermore, a special focus is set on degradable polymers.

At the conference we will present our technology and show results regarding achievable clean-room class inside our 3d-printing system. Also first clinical use-cases like using our technology for the lower jaw reconstruction will be presented.

3D Printing in Surgery and Voxel Printing

Nicholas Jacobson

presented by Nicholas Jacobson, University of Colorado Denver

3d printing has a large domain of uses for Surgery, from pre-surgical planning to custom tool design. To be successful this work involves a process of collaboration to put the ability of solving problems in the hand of surgeons.

We will cover numerous applications of 3d printing tips for collaborating for surgery involving Pediatric Cardiothoracic, Interventional Cardiology, Neurology, Vascular, Live Liver Transplants, and Oncology.

Inkjet-printed “Mini-Pills” for preclinical studies

Anastasia Zakharyuta

by Anastasia Zakharyuta, Post-Doctoral Researcher, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharma GMBH Co & KG

This presentation will focus on the development of formulations for pre-clinical studies is attempted in two different forms, namely basic and complex release solid dosage formulations. The former dosage is aimed to provide an alternative to suspensions, as to minimize variability by improving stability and repeatability of the routine formulations.

The latter provides the complex formulations at the early stage of rodent studies, by combining different formulation mechanisms. The different design for such formulations is feasible with regard to the desired release profile and administration route.

Herein, printing procedures are established for solid dosage fabrication, through incorporation of a number of low molecular weight biodegradable polymers via piezo-actuated inkjet printing.

3D printing: when a disruptive technology meets the legal perspective – Stampa 3D: quando una tecnologia dirompente incontra la prospettiva legale

Licia Garotti

by Licia Garotti, Partner of the law firm Gattai, Minoli, Agostinelli & Partners

The 3D printing has been acclaimed as a disruptive technology, which is changing the scenario in many different sectors.

The most revolutionary implementation has been developed in life science and healthcare, leading to legal implications which are far from ordinary.

From the responsibility arising from the use of product obtained with 3d print, to commercial and data protection features, touching the aspects of intellectual property, a state of the art of the mostly relevant legal profiles will take shape.

M3dRES – Additive Manufacturing for Medical Research and Education – Presented by Ewald Unger, Medical University Vienna

Ewald Unger

M3dRES – Additive Manufacturing for Medical Research and Education – Presented by Ewald Unger, Medical University Vienna, Center for Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering, at the 3D Medical Conference, which takes place on January 30-31, 2019, at MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands.

In the last few decades Additive Manufacturing (AM), colloquially known as 3D printing, has been rapidly adopted as a cutting-edge technology gaining more importance in medical applications. Novel ideas for medical treatments using AM has reached maturity in this new field of research, with an increasing number of publications and the establishment of educational programmes in Universities across the globe. The uniqueness of AM in producing customized models with high accuracy allows planning and training of critical operations and traching of advanced medical strategies for a better patient support.
