対象と方法】対象は成人PDA4症例.年齢は54~75歳,Krichenko分類はE 3症例,D1症例であった.CT画像データから3Dプリンターで造形した実体模型を元に透明シリコーン製中空模型を作製し,AMPLATZER™ Duct OccluderおよびAMPLATZER™ Vascular Plug IIの留置形状をシミュレーションして閉鎖術に臨んだ.



Background and Objective: It is challenging to accurately predict the shape and stability of occlusion devices during percutaneous closure of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in adults. In this study, we evaluate the utility of percutaneous closure simulation of PDA in adults using patient-specific hollow three-dimensional (3D) models created from computed tomography data.

Methods: The study was conducted on four adult patients with PDA, whose age ranged from 54 to 75 years. While three were type E as per the Krichenko classification, one was type D. We created a transparent silicone hollow model using a solid model, which was printed by a personal 3D printer from contrast-enhanced multidetector computed tomography data, as a mold. All processes were carried out at our institution. Before actually performing percutaneous closure of PDA, we simulated procedures using these models and investigated the shape and stability of AMPLATZER™ Duct Occluder/AMPLATZER™ Vascular Plug deployed in them.

Results: Briefly, the time and cost required to create a hollow 3D model were about 3 days and 10,000 Japanese Yen, respectively. It was very easy to recognize the shape and stability of deployed devices in these models because the devices were clearly visible from outside. In fact, these models could be picked up by hands and observed from various angles, which was helpful in selecting optimum devices for closure.

Conclusions: The transparent silicone hollow models are an excellent simulator of percutaneous closure of PDA, especially in adults.
