Our latest publication in Frontiers in Surgery outline our experience in utilising 3D models to improve surgical planning and logistics for patients undergoing complex total hip arthroplasty. A great effort by 3dMedLab students Michael Jiang and Gordon Chen, Jasamine Coles-Black, and Austin Health orthopaedic surgeon Matthew Alexander. You can read the full article here.
Our MD Research Project students have been hard at work again and we are proud to announce another publication. Students Michael Jiang and Gordon Chen have published their systematic review of 3d printing for orthopaedic preoperative planning in the ANZ Journal of Surgery. The study, co-supervised by orthopaedic surgeon Mr Andrew Hardidge, concludes that there is clear evidence for the use of 3d printed models to improve intra-operative metrics (such as operating time) and patient understanding and engagement.
