This is a super-soft precise 3D model aimed at surgical training for congenital heart disease. It consists of the heart, which is 50×50 mm, the special stand, and the suture holder. Based on the patient's CT scan data, we construct 3D data under the supervision of the veteran pediatric heart surgeon. This model that is ±0.2mm of accuracy is made by 3D printing and casting skill. As super-soft (shoreA, hardness almost 0°) urethane is used, the doctors can incise and inosculate. So, this is the world-first product that makes the congenital heart disease surgery training possible on the table.
