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 2

Surgical simulation photograph of a 3D-printed aneurysm model implanted in a left-side opercular artery. The sylvian fissure was completely split and the opercular arteries (M2) were exposed. The aneurysm was implanted into the proximal segment of one opercular artery. Both temporal clips and permanent clipping of the aneurysm neck were trained during the surgical simulation.
