3D Printed Model of the Duodenal-Pancreatic Tract for Surgical Planning

The patient-specific model represents the pancreatic-duodenal tract with its arterial and venous vessels. The model was useful for the surgical planning of an intervention of total mesocolic excision in right hemicolectomy. The vessels’ structure and morphology which characterizes the pancreatic-duodenal tract is particularly complex, thus the 3D printed model has allowed a better and easier visualization.
