Stratasys 3D Printing

Pediatric Cardiology - Mia's Heart

By: Stratasys


Mia was born with an abnormal aortic arch that posed challenges for a traditional surgery. She required a custom procedure specific to her condition and anatomy, so Director of Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery Dr. Redmond Burke leaned on a Stratasys PolyJet 3D printer.

In this case study, Nicklaus Children's Hospital utilizes 3D printing to assist with surgical planning and training medical students. See how they utilized a Connex3 to 3D print a model of Mia's heart.

Topic Overview

    1. Challenges of diagnosing and treating without a 3D printer
    2. Technology capable of printing an exact replica of Mia's heart
    3. Benefits to using a 3D printed model to plan surgery
    4. How it impacted lead time, cost and outcome
