3D Printed Heart Valves Assist Cardiologists in Planning Patient Specific Replacement Surgeries

In the July issue of JACC Cardiovascular Imaging, our collaborative team from  the Piedmont Heart Institute and Georgia Institute of Technology published a paper titled, Quantitative Prediction of Paravalvular Leak in Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement Based on Tissue-Mimicking 3D Printing.  In this study, we demonstrated the feasibility of using 3D printing technologies to create patient-specific heart valve models […]
