Canine Stifle Product Release

Med Dimensions is proud to offer a canine stifle, MD-E-2000, now available for purchase.

Product Overview

This product is a model of a left hind limb, derived from real CT scans to provide as close to real anatomy as possible. The model includes LCL, MCL, Meniscus, Patellar Tendon, and Tendon of Ider constructs. It is a replica of a small/medium canine, roughly a 15-20kg dog, and is 8.5 inches long.

Key Features & Benefits

The ligaments are constructed of a blend of silicone that allows for proper constricted motion of the joint, as verified by leading veterinarians. The partial tibia and femur is 3D printed in a filament that is ideal for cutting and drilling practice. The silicone ligaments will hold suture, and are secured within the bone- not glued on- to prevent premature ripping of the ligaments from the insertion sites. The bone holds anchors, buttons, plates, and screws, providing tactile feedback to the user and ideal for demonstrations.

Double Layer Suturing Pads Product Release

Med Dimensions is proud to offer 2 versions of high quality suturing pads for the teaching and learning of surgical suturing and knot tying: MD-E-0033B (3 slit) and MD-E-0053B (5 slit). Minimum ordering quantity is five (5) units.

Product Overview

This product comes in 2 versions: MD-E-0033B and MD-E-0053B.

MD-E-0033B is a double layer suturing pad, replicating the dermal and subcutaneous layers with three (3) 100 mm slits for a student to hone their suturing skills.

MD-E-0053B is a double layer suturing pad, replicating the dermal and subcutaneous layers with five (5) slits of varying lengths for a student to hone their suturing skills.

Key Features & Benefits

Made from a proprietary blend of silicones, these pads provide tactile simulation similar to real anatomy, and layers are denoted with different colors. These suturing pads have an embedded mesh to simulate the “pop feeling” associated with suturing. Each pad arrives in a hard plastic case with non-slip feet to increase the longevity of the pad. Additionally, the size of the pad is conveniently low profile, so anyone can easily fit the pad in a backpack or other small bag.

VENT Creativity and Med-Dimensions Announce Development Partnership For AI Based Canine Hip Replacement Surgery Planning System from DICOM Images

VENT Creativity Corporation., a leading provider of Principal Density Analysis software applications for medical imaging modalities, and Med-Dimensions, LLC., a veterinary medical device company specialising in patient-specific education and surgical solutions, today announced the availability of an integration between the two development environments to streamline the imaging to custom 3D printed cutting guides for canine hip replacement surgeries at an unparalleled speed and cost.

The direct connection between VENT Creativity’s 3D CAD based density analysis AI software, Minerva, and Med Dimension’s biocompatible 3D printed cutting guide technology allows companies or hospitals to quickly optimize product designs through rapid design and simulation cycles with minimal cost to the surgeon customers.

Digital simulation software is growing in healthcare as more surgeons analyze surgical plans and cutting guides for the surgeries they plan. This trend toward patient specific and fast analysis – where digital simulation occurs as part of the surgical process – benefits surgeons and patients by providing patient specific optimal quality, reduced OR time with guides that fit the patient anatomy everytime, and reduced guess work for in surgery decision making.

For the healthcare system where time and costs are decision drivers for products used, moving from manual tools that do not always fit the patients to custom delivered guides that fit each patient everytime is a value driver. The integration between VENT Creativity and Med Dimensions allows the easy exchange of information so design and simulation run in parallel.

Dr Rory Todhunter on the value added to the medical community from this partnership:

“The goal of elective surgery is to improve quality of life for the patient while reducing the risk of surgical error. Training, practice, and experience reduce the risk of error. However, if freehand implantation of a femoral stem in a total hip replacement procedure is not coaxially aligned, femoral fracture can result. A 3D printed reaming guide to develop coaxially aligned preparation of the femoral canal that can be produced quickly and cost effectively from a CT will reduce surgical error and complications for surgeons of differing experience. The risk of surgical error and operative time should be reduced.”
