Abstract :

Pre-surgical planning using imaging in pediatric congenital and acquired heart disease has played a vital role in patient outcomes for many decades. With advances in 3D printing technology we are now able to take patient specific imaging data and create 3D patient specific physical models. These models can be used to for pre-procedural patient specific simulations of cardiac procedures. We have successfully performed pre-procedure simulated procedures on physical modelsina patient with aortic stenosis undergoing percutaneous aortic valve placement where the size of the valve was in question, two patients with VSD from myocardial infarction that needed a device closure and to predict compatibility of donors and recipients for heart transplants. In all cases the simulated procedure had a significant impact on the actual procedure resulting in decreased time of procedure compared to standards, influenced the choice of the device chosen and was key in predicting correct sizing of implant. All though the numbers are small the impact seems to be significant.
