Measures for polymers. Implant models are printed on the MUF on a 3D printer | Healthy life | Health

A model of a skull implant was made at the Urban Forum in Gostiny Dvor. On its basis, specialists developed an endoprosthesis, which the doctors installed for the patient. This was stated Moscow Deputy Mayor for Social Development Anastasia Rakova.

According to Rakova, this technique is being developed and gradually implemented by the joint efforts of specialists from the City Clinical Hospital No. N. I. Pirogov and the resident company of the Moscow Center for Innovative Technologies in Healthcare.

“At the Moscow Urban Forum in Gostiny Dvor, we show the technologies of medicine of the future, which are already being actively used in city clinics. One of these breakthrough areas is 3D printing. On the site of the forum on a 3D printer, we printed an implant model according to the personal parameters of a skull defect of a patient at the First City Hospital. On its basis, a sterile endoprosthesis was created at the company’s production facilities, which Moscow doctors successfully installed for a patient. We are especially pleased that, by demonstrating the latest developments, we continue to help people,” said Anastasia Rakova.

Previously, operations to eliminate skull defects were performed using titanium plates. Already since last year in the City Clinical Hospital No. N. I. Pirogov actively use composite implants made of polymeric biocompatible material Rekost. This is the development of the domestic company AikonLab. It is important to note that it has a number of advantages over titanium products. Polymeric biocompatible material is not subject to deformation and does not heat up. In GKB No. 1, 12 operations have already been performed using the new product.

After taking a CT scan and printing a 3D model of the patient’s injury, the company proceeds to the manufacture of composite implants. In this way, the number of invasive procedures can be minimized. This technology is being tested with the support of Medtech at the Research Institute for Emergency Medicine. N. V. Sklifosovsky, City Clinical Hospital No. 67 named after. L. A. Vorokhobova, MKNTS im. A. S. Loginova GKB im. V. M. Buyanova, City Clinical Hospital No. 1 im. N. I. Pirogov and in other institutions.

You can see how 3D models of endoprostheses are printed at the Moscow Urban Forum in Gostiny Dvor at the real-time 3D printing booth. There you can also find out how laboratory assistants are trained in new methods of complex rehabilitation after a stroke using a special platform with feedback, and video games, and a VR laboratory.
