Torrevieja University Hospital integrates 3D technology in esophageal surgery

A team of surgeons from Torrevieja University Hospital has successfully and pioneered a treatment. Laparoscopic Esophagectomy Through the tumor with the support of three-dimensional (3D) technology.

Incorporating 3D technology in a personalized way increases the success rate in complex surgeries. In fact, the surgical team, Dr. Led by Andrés Tomás and including other members, By Dr. Yanco GonzalezGeneralitat said in a statement that it successfully performed the operation on an elderly patient with a tumor in his esophagus.

The patient came to the center With difficulty in eatingAfter months of evolution and a 10% weight loss, the press release says.

A customized 3D anatomical model has also facilitated decision-making in this surgery. specific, Served the surgical team to diagnose the tumor more accuratelyry and significantly improves its oncology segmentation.

„3D technology has been of great help in countless surgical interventions, however, to date, its systematic application in the field of esophageal surgery and The stomach has not yet been discovered„In such an exciting and complex pathology as esophageal-gastric cancer, we are motivated to become one of the leading hospitals in the use of this technology,” explained Dr. González.

According to the report, More than 400 scientific publications Support the clinical application of 3D modeling technology in personalized cancer surgical planning.


These studies highlight the utility of anatomical models specific to individual patients Internal surgery can help reduce complications Helps increase the success of cancer surgery and interventions.

in development 3D models A multidisciplinary team that includes engineers, mathematicians and physicists as well as medical imaging technicians and radiologists works.

The work process begins when these professionals receive medical images and radiology reports anonymously through an online platform. Using artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced computational techniques, proceed to analyze and determine relevant anatomical structures.

The final 3D model is provided by a special platform that facilitates planning Surgical interventions.

Additionally, surgeons are likely to request a physical copy of the model created using 3D printing techniques.
