Models for surgical planning.

Neurosurgery is extremely complex. The nature of the surgery revolves around minute anatomical structures, and when it comes to performing operations on such vital parts of the human anatomy, preparedness and accuracy are imperative. Any technology that may provide a leg up in practicing procedures and understanding complex neurovascular structures can cut meaningful time off of long procedures, and even more importantly, make the difference between a procedure being successful or not. 

Jacob's Institute, a not-for-profit medical device innovation center, the Gates Vascular Institute, a vascular hospital, and the University at Buffalo's School of Medicine and School of Engineering are utilizing 3D printing to create patient-specific vascular flow models to train and prepare for complex neuroendovascular procedures.

Over the next fifteen pages, you'll learn about how Stratasys PolyJet technology is revolutionizing the world of neurovascular surgery by allowing surgeons to hold the anatomy in their hands, giving them a three-dimensional understanding of their patient's anatomical structure before surgery begins. This understanding is invaluable when it comes to surgical time and success.
