Application of additive manufacturing technique in veterinary surger
May 09, 2018

Experts from Germany, Canada and Britain in the recently completed an international health cooperation projects, the treatment in a Canadian family pet dog, and the metal 3D printing in which played an important role.Surgery in Canada, the doctor USES a by the German Voxelmed company designed and made by rennie salt company implants, used to replace the dog head loss due to tumor resection of maxillary bone.


Dogs are more than 50 percent more likely to develop cancer after age 10.Usually, chemotherapy can be used to suppress tumors, and then surgical resection, which generally does not cause lasting trauma.

However, in some cases, due to the complex part of the tumor, the operation can be very difficult and can seriously affect the postoperative survival quality of the sick dog.

In the field of human surgery, the medical profession has made a major breakthrough - more and more surgeons are using custom-built implants to help improve surgical outcomes and shorten the patient's recovery cycle.In the past, the hospital has used custom-built implants (PSI) for extremely complex cases, and now, thanks to advances in technology, PSI has become a part of standard medical practice.

One of the most effective ways to produce PSI is to use medical special CAD tools to customize the design and to complete the processing using additive manufacturing (AM) technology.
