Doctor from Brigham and Women's Hospital Discussed Impact of Stratasys 3D Printing in Facial Transplants

MINNEAPOLIS & REHOVOT, Israel — (BUSINESS WIRE) — December 1, 2014Stratasys Ltd. (Nasdaq: SSYS), a global leader of 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions, announced that Dr. Frank J. Rybicki, the director of Applied Imaging Science Laboratory at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, discussed the impact of Stratasys 3D printing for a full-face transplant patient at the 2014 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago today.

Dr. Rybicki and his team visualize 3D printing as an emerging and disruptive technology in medicine today. With the initial application of 3D printing developing skeletal structures, much of the recent research has addressed soft tissue. During the RSNA press conference, Dr. Rybicki discussed the impact of Stratasys 3D printing for soft tissue with transplant patient Carmen Blandin Tarleton. “We’ve 3D printed the soft tissues before and after Carmen’s full-face transplantation. We’re going to illustrate those dramatic changes in tissues using a new method that has been previously unavailable,” says Dr. Rybicki. “The soft tissues that are 3D printed in one piece are much better than photographs. They provide a better understanding of what’s between the skin and bones than any two-dimensional representation can.”

During the RSNA press conference, Dr. Rybicki illustrated the potential of Stratasys 3D models form pre- and post-op situations. Printed from the Stratasys Objet500 Connex3 and the Objet Eden 260VS, models showed simulated facial tissue and bone structure, as well as how Dr. Rybicki’s team is using them to better understand the state of soft tissue at various stages in time.

"The medical research and advancements brought on by 3D printing is truly life altering. We strive to empower the healthcare heroes with technologies, materials and work flow to help advance their cause," says Gilad Gans, President, Stratasys North America. "Dr. Rybicki and his team are changing lives and using Stratasys’ most advanced 3D printing technology."
