Spina Bifida Myelomeningocele


SKU: DCP-PNEURO-SBMC-01 Category: Tag:


This 3D-printed anatomical model features a fetus with the myelomeningocele variation of spina bifida. It is an excellent accessory for medical professionals and students everywhere to use for teaching, training, or patient education.

Using segmented images from MRI scans, DASH has created an incredibly realistic representation of the myelomeningocele. The model accurately depicts the gap in the spine, as well as the surrounding meninges and exposed spinal cord. With its durable construction, this model will provide years of use in any medical or educational setting.

Using this anatomical model, medical students and clinicians will have a better understanding of how myelomeningocele develops and how it affects the baby’s health. It provides important insight into this anomaly, giving providers better tools to offer effective treatments.


Myelomeningocele is a variation of spina bifida. Spina bifida is a birth defect in which a baby’s spine and spinal column does not form properly. DASH created these models to assist surgeons at Orlando Health with patient education and surgical planning. Now, these unique models are available to help physicians and students across the country learn about this rare disorder and help educate patients about the condition when discussing potential treatment options.
