VIDEO: Children’s Hospital Uses 3-D Printing To Tailor Stents in Complex Congenital Heart Case

When a pediatric patient at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles needed a custom-build stent to repair his pulmonary artery, pediatric interventional cardiologist Frank Ing, M.D., used 3-D printed models from the patient's CT scans. The model helped make sure the stent they made would fit. The model also was used to plan and guide the procedure. This video is made up of clips complied by the hospital and includes some narration of the case by Ing, ending with the final angiographic result with the new stent. Read the article “Children's Hospital Los Angeles Cardiologist Creates Modified Stent for 18-month-old Using Printed 3-D Model.”
