Medical 3D printing prospects are good, but hinder many – Sohu Technology disise.com

Medical 3D printing: the future good, just hinder the multi – Sohu techcrunch technology according to the global 3D printing materials market analysis and forecast ResearchandMarkets recently released "(2016 –2022 years)" in the report pointed out that in 2022, the global 3D printing materials market will reach $1 billion 520 million, dental and medical industry has become an important driving force. And recently, the combination of 3D printing and medical field has taken a step forward. Southern Institute of Urology, Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine Affiliated Renji Hospital last week had medical headlines, it in the world’s first successful application of 3D printing technology in the treatment of urinary tract disease. In the global 3D printing urological diseases first, the surgery was originally a sacral nerve stimulator implantation, which belongs to a new minimally invasive treatment, is also in the buttock implants a small programmable device, through the remote control of external equipment separately, the incontinence symptoms in patients with treatment. The device consists of a pulse generator, an electrode, and a connecting wire. According to Lei Feng network to understand the relevant physicians, although this type of surgery is minimally invasive technology, has been more than traditional technology has made great progress, but there are still some problems. Because of the very narrow sacral foramina, if the use of intraoperative implantation of electrodes, not only difficult, it takes several hours, and doctors and patients may also have radiation risk." According to the deputy director of Urology physician Lv Jianwei introduction, 3D printing technology used in this operation can accurately simulate the real, and fully understand the anatomical features of patients with sacral nerve and sacral foramen, which is convenient for doctors implant research design scheme. And this technology only need to customize the 3D model and the electrode at the point of the needle can be completed, the length of time is shortened to 5 minutes. This is undoubtedly a solid step in precision medicine, according to the official website, the hospital is currently applying for the national patent for the technology. With the requirements of precision medicine and rapid rehabilitation medicine, 3D printing technology will become more and more widely, becoming one of the hot spots in the field of medical development." Urology director Xue Yuru said. Three may in fact medical and 3D printing, 3D printing in the early 90s had been born, and in recent years a popular guest culture, let the industry suffering from attention. Application of 3D printing is very broad, from the industrial to the consumer level this is not the only one, looking at the current market, it is combined with medical "from the shallower to the deeper, from easy to difficult", including the following three aspects. The first is the external device, which is the initial application of 3D printing in the medical field, mainly played a role of "assistive". For example, 3D model, rehabilitation aids, etc.. This application is relatively difficult to implement small, universality is strong, such as public welfare organization e-NABLE for disabled children at a low price making prosthesis, cost only 1 what相关的主题文章:
