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.”

VIDEO: Explaining Sudden Cardiac Death to Patients - Illustration by Rahul Doshi, M.D.

This video, provided by Zoll, demonstrates how cardiologists can explain sudden cardiac death to patients. It is critical to educate patients who are at risk of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), so Rahul Doshi, M.D., director of electrophysiology, associate professor of clinical medicine, Keck Medical Center of University of Southern California, explains sudden cardiac death (SCD) to his patients using a simple illustration. Visit SCDFacts.org for additional resources for you and your team to support the SCD conversation with your patients. One in five post-AMI patients have been shown to be at high risk of dying after PCI.1 The majority of mortality in AMI patients post-PCI occurs in the first three months — one out of every 10 high-risk patients die, with about 60 percent of this mortality due to SCD.[1,2]
