Creating a 3D-printed implant begins with a patient’s medical imaging data, such as CT or MRI scans, used to create a digital 3D model of the affected area. The digital model is then used to create a physical implant through a layer-by-layer additive manufacturing process using a 3D printer. In the case of spinal implants, these are typically used to stabilize and/or fuse vertebrae in the spine to treat conditions such as degenerative disc disease, spinal fractures, and scoliosis. 3D-printed spinal implants are customized to fit the unique anatomy of each patient’s spine, providing a better fit and potentially better outcomes compared to traditional off-the-shelf implants.
Chest implants can be used for various purposes, including correcting deformities, repairing damage caused by trauma, and treating medical conditions such as pectus excavatum (sunken chest) and Poland syndrome (underdeveloped chest muscles). 3D printed chest implants can be made to fit the patient’s exact specifications, providing a more accurate and precise fit than traditional implants.3D printed spinal and chest implants offer a promising new approach to medical implants, providing customized solutions that can improve patient outcomes and quality of life.
