Hip 3D-printed models save time in surgery

Some of the 3D-printed models used in the study

Slipped capital femoral epiphysis is the most common hip disorder in children aged 9 to 16, affecting about 11 in 100,000 children in the US annually. It’s treated via surgery to reshape the head of the femur, and needless to say – the quicker that the operation can be completed, the better. That’s why scientists from the University of California San Diego have been experimentally using 3D-printed models of patients’ hips to reduce surgery time by approximately 25 percent.
