3D Printing Applications in Cardiovascular Medicine addresses the rapidly growing field of additive fabrication within the medical field, in particular, focusing on cardiovascular medicine. To date, 3D printing of hearts and vascular systems has been largely reserved to anatomic reconstruction with no additional functionalities. However, 3D printing allows for functional, physiologic and bio-engineering of products to enhance diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease. This book contains the state-of-the-art technologies and studies that demonstrate the utility of 3D printing for these purposes.

Key Features

  • Addresses the novel technology and cardiac and vascular application of 3D printing
  • Each chapter features case studies and tips for applying 3D technology into clinical practice
  • Accompanying website provides 3D examples from cardiovascular clinicians, imagers, computer science and engineering experts whose research and clinical focus is of 3D printing in cardiovascular applications


Cardiology researchers, cardiologists, imagers and clinicians applying 3D printing

Bobak Mosadegh

The Mosadegh lab uses interdisciplinary approaches to develop novel technologies for biomedical applications, particularly for cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and implantable/wearable therapeutics. The lab has specific interests in exploiting the properties of polymers and fluids to develop soft machines with integrated “smart” behaviors. These soft machines use technologies related to microfluidics, soft robotics, and 3D cell culture. Between 2010-2014 Dr. Mosadegh published 19 publications throughout various disciplines. He has an h-index of 13. He has 304 citations, a 2.75 FWCI and averages 16 citations per publication during this same time frame. 63.2% of his publications appear in the top 10% most cited publications worldwide. Dr. Mosadegh has experience with international, national, and institutional collaboration having worked with 86 co-authors.
