Today’s topic is 3d printing in urology, and how 3d printing can help patient education through a simulated urostomy! This low cost, simple device can help patients adjust to life-changing surgery, and demonstrates how quickly an idea can go from concept to prototype using CAD and 3d printing techniques.
Many thanks to our authors Dr Jasamine Coles-Black, Dr Ian Chao, A/Prof Jason Chuen, A/Prof Nathan Lawrentschuck, Mr Dennis Gyomber and Prof Damien Bolton, along with the production team at the Journal of 3d Printing in Medicine!

You know that little tingle that goes down your spine when something goes right? We we are feeling it now, with our most recent paper published in Anaesthesia Reports.
These little critters are making a huge difference to our surgery and anaesthesia teams in the midst of this COVID-19 pandemic, making sure that their Powered Air Purifying Respirators (PAPRs) are working properly and keeping them safe under their surgical gowns — let’s hope that it helps others as well.
