Nowadays, the applications of 3D printing in Orthopaedics are as follows:
Firstly, the models. This is the easier aspect. Whether anatomical models or disease models, they all can be easily produced by 3D printing, guiding the clinical applications. For example, anatomical models can be teaching models, or even offer reference for treatment. Secondly, the guide plates. That is to say, those models can be used for corresponding tools, and during operations, guiding doctors to do operations with more accuracy and more safety.
Why do people apply those 3D printed implants in Orthopaedics?
Thus is owing to significant advantages of those implants.
On the one hand, 3D printing technology can produce any kinds of specific shapes. Because anatomical structures of human body are not regular shapes, those implants are more suitable for anatomy. On the other hand, it’s very important in the clinical medicine. Those implants can be micropore shape, which can provide the possibility of bone issue growth between skeletons, and the realizing the integration.
At present, there are three kinds of implants have become products and formally applied in the clinical medicine such as hip joint. It has been applied for thousands of cases, and the feedback is very great. How about its price? Compared with similar products, those produced by 3D printing are cheaper.
