Based on real data of patients, 3D hearts are designed to help doctors perform 'virtual' surgeries instead of on the patients' bodies.
A 3D model of the heart was designed by Dassault Systèmes , a division of 3D Experience Company, designed to simulate on the 3D Experience platform with details of the size and contraction of the heart by using real images from tomography Computerized and magnetic resonance of patients with the Windkessel effect measures arterial blood pressure and the amount of blood in the heart. 3D heart consists of 4 compartments (including 2 atria, 2 ventricles) and heart valves, simulating the multi-dimensional cardiovascular system, helping doctors understand how the patient's body works, the mechanical deformations of the heart . From there diagnose the disease situation and offer appropriate treatment plans.
Jonathan Browns, a chemical engineer at Dassault Systèmes, said the complicated cardiovascular structure made it difficult for surgeons to analyze the health condition of patients. Moreover, it is inevitable that unforeseen problems arise during the surgery that the doctor and the patient will encounter.
Thanks to this model, doctors can perform "virtual" surgeries without affecting health status, reducing risks for patients during the surgery. This model was also developed in training and researching new drugs and medical devices in medicine.
At the Hanoi Innovation Summit 2019 held in Hanoi on August 29, the team introduced Dassault Systèmes's Living Heart Project and wants to bring this model into heart science. circuits in Vietnam. In the future, the group plans to work with a number of major hospitals in Hanoi to organize seminars on cardiovascular science as well as how to apply this model in Vietnamese hospitals.
