Custom 3D-Printed Triply Periodic Minimal Surface-Based Bone Implants


WHEN May 4, 2023
6-7:30 PM EST WHERE 19 Washington Square North WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute in New York Open to the Public

Orthopedic implants are commonly utilized to support or replace damaged or injured bones in an effort to restore form and function. There are several challenges associated with the current metallic bone implants, such as lack of biomimicry and stress-shielding. Given the limited selection of implant materials, a difficulty arises in designing and fabricating a biomimetic, functionally graded, light-weight bone structure to overcome the mentioned challenges. This talk presents a proof-of-concept study on design and 3D-printing of lattice-based structures for patient-defect-specific orthopedic implants with improved biomimicry that would mitigate stress-shielding.
