205. Low-cost Design and Manufacturing of Surgical Guides for Mandibular Reconstruction Using a Fibula Full Text available with Trip Pro

Low-cost Design and Manufacturing of Surgical Guides for Mandibular Reconstruction Using a Fibula Surgical cutting guides are used in mandibular reconstruction involving osteotomy of the mandible and fibula. Cutting guides produced using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technologies have been reported recently. These guides aim to increase the benefits to patients by improving the accuracy, shortening the operating time, and correcting occlusion. However (...) , the availability of these advanced technologies is limited in some regions of the world. To test whether we could produce low-cost surgical cutting guides, we made surgical guides and investigated their accuracy.Using free CAD software, we designed surgical cutting guides for the mandible and fibula and used these to perform virtual mandibular segmental osteotomies and fibula transplants in 12 model surgeries. The cutting guides were printed on a 3-dimensional (3D) printer. The model surgeries were performed

fluidic reservoirs. We previously introduced the concept of using hand fabricated polymer inserts to template cell culture and sampling reservoirs into PDMS devices, allowing rapid stimulation and sampling of endocrine tissue. However, fabrication of the fluidic reservoirs was time consuming, tedious, and was prone to errors during device curing. Here, we have implemented computer-aided design and 3D printing to circumvent these fabrication obstacles. In addition to rapid prototyping and design (...) by temporally assaying glucose-stimulated insulin secretion from <10 pancreatic islets and glycerol secretion from 2 mm adipose tissue explants, suggesting that 3D-printed interface templates could be applicable to a variety of cells and tissue types. More generally, this work validates desktop 3D printers as versatile interfacing tools in microfluidic laboratories.

208. Effect of Three-Dimensional Printed Personalized Moisture Chamber Spectacles on the Periocular Humidity Full Text available with Trip Pro

Effect of Three-Dimensional Printed Personalized Moisture Chamber Spectacles on the Periocular Humidity Purpose. To assess the effect of three-dimensional (3D) printed personalized moisture chamber spectacles (PMCS) on the periocular humidity. Methods. Facial computed tomography (CT) scanning was conducted on 10 normal subjects. PMCS was designed based on volume rendered CT images and produced using a 3D printer. Periocular humidity of PMCS and commercially available uniformed moisture chamber (...) spectacles (UMCS) were measured for 30 minutes via microhydrometer. Results. The mean ambient humidity was 15.76 ± 1.18%. The mean periocular humidity was 52.14 ± 3.00% in PMCS and 37.67 ± 8.97% in UMCS. The difference was significant (P < 0.001). Additionally, PMCS always demonstrated lower humidity than dew points. Conclusion. PMCS made by 3D printer provides appropriate fitness for the semiclosed humid chamber. PMCS showed higher performance than UMCS. The wearing of PMCS would be an effective method

of conventional bolus preparation can be overcome by using a 3D printer. CT scans of the body can be used to create 3D models for boluses. The 3D models can then be printed into plastic boluses using a 3D printer. Preliminary studies have shown that 3D printed boluses conform to body contours better and allow for more precise control over radiation dose. In this study, both a conventional and 3D printed bolus will be made. The Investigators will then simulate treatment with both boluses to determine which (...) have been shown to create significant reduction in the surface dose. The goal of the present study is to improve the current process of bolus preparation by creating customized boluses with 3D printing. Customized boluses can be designed in Varian eclipse software and then imported into 3D modeling software such as 3D Slicer. The 3D model can then be converted into STL (Stereolithography) format which can be interpreted by the 3D printer software. Several preliminary studies have reported success

213. Radiopaque Three-dimensional Printing: A Method to Create Realistic CT Phantoms. Full Text available with Trip Pro

, reproduction of patient anatomy was tested by printing computed tomographic (CT) images of a real patient abdomen scan. In a second step, gray scales, iodine deposition, and Hounsfield units were investigated by printing geometric phantoms with gray scales ranging from 0% (white) to 100% (black). On the basis of these results, a gray-scale-correction procedure was developed to achieve realistic Hounsfield units in the patient phantom. In a third step, reproduction of the real patient's Hounsfield units (...) template gray scales and printer deposition. Application of a correction procedure to the template gray scales allowed for a linear correlation (r = 0.9946; 95% confidence interval: 0.9916, 0.9966). After the same correction procedure was applied to the abdomen phantom, linear correlation of phantom and patient Hounsfield units was confirmed (r = 0.9925; 95% confidence interval: 0.9635, 0.9985). Conclusion The method presented in this work can realize realistic and customizable phantoms for diagnostic

216. Preoperative surgical simulation of laparoscopic adrenalectomy for neuroblastoma using a three-dimensional printed model based on preoperative CT images. (Abstract)

Preoperative surgical simulation of laparoscopic adrenalectomy for neuroblastoma using a three-dimensional printed model based on preoperative CT images. Three-dimensional (3D) printed models based on computed tomography (CT) images facilitate the visualization of complex structures and are useful for understanding the surgical anatomy preoperatively. We developed a preoperative surgical simulation method using a 3D printed model based on CT images obtained prior to laparoscopic adrenalectomy (...) for adrenal neuroblastomas (NBs).The multi-detector CT images were transferred to a 3D workstation, and 3D volume data were obtained by reconstructing the sections. A model was made with a 3D printer using acrylic ultraviolet curable resin. The adrenal tumor, kidney, renal vein and artery, inferior vena cava, aorta, and outer body were fabricated. The pneumoperitoneum, insertion of trocars, and laparoscopic view were all attainable in this model. We used this model for three cases with adrenal NB.We used

217. Antenatal Three-Dimensional Printing of Aberrant Facial Anatomy. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Antenatal Three-Dimensional Printing of Aberrant Facial Anatomy. Congenital airway obstruction poses a life-threatening challenge to the newborn. We present the first case of three-dimensional (3D) modeling and 3D printing of complex fetal maxillofacial anatomy after prenatal ultrasound indicated potential upper airway obstruction from a midline mass of the maxilla. Using fetal MRI and patient-specific computer-aided modeling, the craniofacial anatomy of the fetus was manufactured using a 3D (...) printer. This model demonstrated the mass to be isolated to the upper lip and maxilla, suggesting the oral airway to be patent. The decision was made to deliver the infant without a planned ex utero intrapartum treatment procedure. The neonate was born with a protuberant cleft lip and palate deformity, without airway obstruction, as predicted by the patient-specific model. The delivery was uneventful, and the child was discharged without need for airway intervention. This case demonstrates that 3D

therapy to each patient's complicated problem is a major challenge. One solution would be to match patients to existing compounds based on in silico modeling. However, optimization of complex therapy will eventually require designing compounds for patients using computer modeling and just-in-time production, perhaps achievable in the future by three-dimensional (3D) printing. Indeed, 3D printing is potentially transformative by virtue of its ability to rapidly generate almost limitless numbers (...) of objects that previously required manufacturing facilities. Companies are already endeavoring to develop affordable 3D printers for home use. An attractive, but as yet scantily explored, application is to place chemical design and production under digital control. This could be accomplished by utilizing a 3D printer to initiate chemical reactions, and print the reagents and/or the final compounds directly. Of interest, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently approved a 3D printed drug
