Twelve UK Hospitals Enjoy Reduced Surgical Procedure Times and Decline in Costs by Implementing Stratasys 3D Printing Solutions

in which the unaffected side of the patient's face is mirrored to produce a 3D printed reconstruction, prior to the fitting and placement of a titanium plate.

Originally established as a 3D modeling department of Salisbury District Hospital, Replica 3DM has since extended its medical 3D printing capabilities to NHS hospitals across the UK, primarily offering its services to Trusts that do not have in-house access to 3D printers.

"To us, 3D printing and the medical profession go hand-in-hand, particularly in the planning of complicated procedures," explains Matthew Sherry, Managing Director and Founder of Replica 3DM. "A 3D model equips surgeons with a hands-on perspective which cannot be achieved by looking at a computer screen. They can easily rotate, inspect and analyze each surgical procedure on a case-by-case basis, enabling them to pre-bend implants knowing that they will perfectly fit the patient. This is instrumental in eliminating potential problems during operations and can be used as a visual aid when explaining the surgical procedure to patients."

According to Matthew Sherry, the ability to use 3D printed models to pre-bend titanium implants has reduced surgery time significantly.

"In the past, surgeons would depend on surgical experience to fit the plates during surgery. This could not only be quite costly, it may also crucially require longer patient anesthesia times," he explains. "As demonstrated in a recent maxillofacial procedure at Salisbury District Hospital, the ability to pre-bend the titanium plate prior to surgery enabled surgeons to secure the perfect custom fit. This reduced the number of incisions required and overall theatre time, directly impacting the quality of patient care.

"With theatre typically costing around £3,600 an hour, you can imagine how much we save NHS Trusts. In most cases, a model will pay for itself and helps with essential
