Indonesian Researchers 4D Print Spacers for Minimally Invasive Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (MI-TLIF) - 3dprintingzoom
Researchers at Universitas Indonesia are investigating the potential of 4D printed spacers for spinal surgical procedures, outlining their current, revealed findings in ‘Modelling the form reminiscence properties of 4D printed polylactic acid (PLA) for utility of disk spacer in minimally invasive spinal fusion.’ Authors Nindya Aprilia Alief, Sugeng Supriadi, and Yudan Whulanza created a disk spacer in a position to morph in response to its surroundings. Utilizing PLA as the fabric for the disk spacer, the objective was to make a patient-specific implant that may assist to stabilize the lumbar…
