Implantation of 3D-Printed Patient-Specific Aneurysm Models into Cadaveric Specimens: A New Training Paradigm to Allow for Improvements in Cerebrovascular Surgery and Research

Figure 1

Radiological reconstruction of the 3D aneurysm model from a selected patient. Using dedicated software, the aneurysm thrombus (green) and lumen (red) were identified and labeled in each slice of the magnetic resonance of the selected patient (a). The software-generated vascular model was obtained for a patient with a basilar apex (b) and middle cerebral artery (c) aneurysm and the zone of interest was selected and cropped for printing (brown square).
