3-D Models Improve Patient Outcomes in Heart Valve Replacements

2017 04 Jul

Researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology and the Piedmont Heart Institute have used standard medical imaging and 3-D printing technologies to create patient-specific heart valve models. These models can mimic the physiological qualities of the real valves and can help improve the success rate of TAVR by picking the right prosthetic and avoiding... Read more
