Designing Customized 3D Printed Models for Surgical Planning in Repair of Congenital Heart Defects

Sarah Chen, Narutoshi Hibino, Juan Garcia


Advances in diagnostic imaging and 3D printing technology
have enabled the creation of patient-specic models. This
research established a wor kow for creating 3D printed
congenital hear t defec t (CHD) models, focusing specically on
creating aor tic arch models optimized for surgical planning and
simulation for hypoplastic left hear t syndrome (HLHS) stage I
palliation. Novel methods for creating C T as well as 3D
ultrasound and 3D fetal ultrasound derived prints were explored.
