Özet

Three
dimensional
(3D)
print
technology
usage
is becoming
more
popular
in medicine
and
surgical
sciences.
There
is a couple
of study
about
using
3D
print
technology
for
surgical
device
production
and
neurosurgery
in the
literature.
In
order
to adjust
disse
ctor
measurements
to use
during
the
surgical
operation,
from
patient’s
CT
and
MRS
outputs,
spinal
canal
diameters,
nerve
root
attached
foramen
diameters
and
disc
gap
wideness
of the
patient
were
measured.
With
these
measurements,
surgery
dissector
modellin
g was
done
by
using
Solidworks
3D
CAD
program
in Dokuz
Eylul
University,
Department
of Biomechanics.
Polylacticacid
(PLA)
filament
was
used
in the
devices
during
print
process.
In
our
study,
surgical
dissectors’
sterilization
was
done
with
vapor
in 1200C
and
used
in an
operation
for
lumbar
narrow
canal
diagnosed
patient
whose
measurements
were
checked
before
the
surgery.
There
isn’t
any
intraoperative
complication
observed
during
3D
printed
surgery
dissector
usage.
Although
it seems
that
single
using
3D
pri
nted
surgery
dissector
is a
disadvantage,
it costs
cheaper
than
existing
surgery
dissectors.
In
this
article,
we
share
our
experiment
about
surgery’s
one
of the
most
important
device
named
“surgery
dissector”
production
with
3D
print
technology
and
it’s
us
age.
