dc.description.abstractWith recent innovative advances in endovascular medical devices, industry attention on patient-specific healthcare solutions, and increased access to Additive Manufacturing (AM), there has been excitement to define methods and tools to use 3D printing for patient-specific medical device training. Our research focused on defining methods to manufacture first-of-its-kind, compliant, 3D printed, patient-specific Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) vascular flow models for use in simulation of Endovascular Aortic Repair (EVAR) procedures under fluoroscopic guidance. The phantoms are used to train physicians for complex procedures using new medical devices; identify possible peri-procedural complications and approaches to mitigate them; and allow physicians to practice patient-specific procedural approaches in-vitro. It was hypothesized that the use of these AAA 3D printed phantoms would impact the approach to clinical procedures per lessons learned via advanced training and procedural simulation.
