The present paper describes a procedure for the development and production of a physical model for surgical planning of a Left Ventricular Aneurysm.

Abstract

The present paper describes a procedure for the development and production of a physical model for surgical planning of a Left Ventricular Aneurysm. The method is based on the general approach provided in Otton et al. (2017) and was customized to seek a reliable and fast procedure for the production of a specific type of cardiac model - i.e. chambers of the left side of the heart. The paper covers all the steps: processing of the data, segmentation, modelling and 3D printing; details are provided for all the phases, in order to allow the reproduction of the achieved results. The procedure relies on Computed Tomography - CT imaging as data source for the identification and modelling of the anatomy. Materialise Mimics was used as segmentation software to process the CT data. While its usefulness for the surgical needs was verified on a single clinical case (provided by the Careggi Hospital of Florence, Italy), the modelling procedure was tested twice, to produce a physical replica both ex-ante and ex-post surgical intervention.The tools used for segmentation and generation of the printable model were customized to reduce modelling time for the specific type of desired model.Detailed information on the use of modeling tools, not available in the literature, will be provided.The procedure allows fabrication of a physical model representing the heart chambers in a short time.
