This model depicts the anatomy of a persistent left superior vena cava. This is a condition where the vena cava extends beyond it’s typical pathway and extends into the right atrium. This rare bit of pathology was segmented by CT imagery, and is an excellent anatomical reference. Since it is printed in a compliant material it can also be used to test medical devices and practice surgical techniques inside of atypical anatomy.
This model is 3D printed on top of the line polyjet 3D printers. Due to this the material is recreated with the highest dimensional accuracy and compliant materials.
