The application of additive manufacturing technique in veterinary surgery
May 09, 2018


A dog is a seven-year-old bernese mountain dog, it's on the left side of the upper head have a tumor, doctor think after diagnosis, in addition to the first complete resection, and then implement the facial repair, there is no better treatment.Because of the complexity of the tumor in place, the doctor choose custom 3 d printing of titanium alloy implants to support a dog postoperative facial bone structure - this is considered to be the best treatment plan, because the implants can have free shapes and characteristics of highly complex.

So far, the PSI is mainly used for the treatment of human cases, but in a multinational company in the field of engineering and medical technology, rainie shaoxing Voxelmed and 3 d design professional company, the hope that through this case highlights increasing material manufacturing technology in the application advantages in the field of veterinary surgeon.

The solution

The operation by Ottawa, Canada Alta Vista veterinarians at the animal hospital Julius Liptak butcher, intraoperative used by the German Voxelmed company design, by rennie salt increases material manufacturing technology made of titanium alloy and maxillofacial implants.



Experts participating in the project, first of all, the use of medical digital imaging and communication (DICOM) international standards, the dog more scanning image analysis and integration to generate digital 3D model of tumor site.Next, the experts used the model and combined with Dr. Liptak's guidance to design a customized implant.

During the design process, Dr. Liptak repeatedly checked the expected renderings of the implant and compared it with the 3D scan image of the lesion and the canine skull model.The refinement of the design phase makes it easier to place the implant in the manufacture and placement of the implant because it meets the technical specifications required by Dr. Liptak.

Dr Liptak is therefore able to plan the procedure in advance, simplify the preparation and shorten the time the sick dog is in anesthesia.

The implant was made by ADEISS, a medical additive design solution center in London, Ontario, Canada.
