Saving a Newborn
3D-Printed Hip
HeartPrint®: an Eye Opener
FDA Cleared Facial Implant
Supporting an Unprecedented Procedure with HeartPrint

Finding out that you are going to have a baby may be one of the happiest days of your life. Sadly, for one family in New York, the joy quickly turned to fear and uncertainty when they found out their baby would be born with a complex form of congenital heart disease. Having already diagnosed the condition in the womb, the doctors at NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital had time to plan how they would save the baby’s life before it even began with the support of a HeartPrint model and the Mimics Innovation Suite.

3D-Printed Hip Puts Teenager Back on her Feet

A Swedish teenage girl was facing a lifetime in a wheelchair because of a congenital disease that left her with a severely deformed left hip joint. Her painful condition forced her to be home schooled. With the 3D-printed Mobelife aMace® implant and virtual planning in Materialise’s Mimics and 3-matic software, she is now pain-free, walking without crutches and going back to school like a normal teenager.

HeartPrint® Model Helps 16 Year-Old Patient with a Heart Tumor

It’s devastating news when you hear that your grandchild was born with a heart tumor. Not knowing if he will have complications, if he will be able to live a normal life, and if he will enjoy a long life. This was the news that Christine White heard when her grandson Bradley was only three. When cardiologist Dr. Timothy Knilans and cardiac surgeon Dr. David Morales saw Bradley’s 3D-printed heart model, it was an eye opener.

Towards a widespread clearance of 3D-printed medical devices worldwide

"With the clearance of our 3D-printed facial device, we now have the ability to treat these extremely complex cases in a highly effective and economical way, printing patient-specific maxillofacial implants from individualized MRI or CT digital image files from the surgeon," said Scott DeFelice, CEO of Oxford Performance Materials.
