How might 3D printing affect clinical practice?

If a picture is worth a thousand words, the value of a three-dimensional printout could be considerable. 3D printing is starting to disrupt the manufacturing industry, from jewellery to firearms, rapid prototyping to motor racing components. Inevitably, it has now reached healthcare.1 Last year Craig Gerrand, consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Trust, used computed tomography guided 3D printing to develop a titanium pelvis for a patient with chondrosarcoma.2 And doctors at University of Michigan’s Mott Children’s Hospital have implanted 3D printed plastic splints into the trachea of neonates to rectify tracheobronchomalacia.3

Inadequate neurology services undermine patient care in the UK

“Neurology for the masses” announced The BMJ’s then editor, Richard Smith, in 1999.1 Old stereotypes may associate neurology with rare syndromes and a fondness for diagnosis not treatment, he went on, but it is also a specialty of common illnesses such as epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease. He might also have mentioned that neurological symptoms include some of the commonest complaints such as headache and fatigue. Sixteen years on and despite a doubling of consultants, a damning parliamentary report,2 thrombolysis for stroke, and an awareness of increasing neurodegenerative disease only people living in select areas, or able to travel, will encounter a neurologist. The Neurological Alliance, a patients’ organisation in England, reports that 31% of patients had to see their primary care doctor five or more times, and 40% waited more than 12 months with symptoms before seeing one.3 The UK is the only developed nation with this problem. We have one neurologist per 90 000 people4; the European average is one per 15 000,5 and in the United States concern has been expressed that one per 19 000 isn’t enough.6

A Foundation for Neonatal Care

This authoritative guide offers a vital overview including the recent fundamental changes in the care of newborn babies. As well as medical staff, key roles are now played by senior nurses, clinical nurse specialists, pharmacists, advanced neonatal nurse practitioners, nurse consultants, midwives, dieticians, physiotherapists and speech therapists. The involvement of such a diverse range of professional cultures in such a rapidly developing area often leads to competing priorities, complicated by a lack of established guidelines. There is also the added challenge of fetal medicine - an important emerging allied specialty new to many healthcare professionals. This book assists all professionals involved in the provision of neonatal care in understanding the genetic, physiological and biochemical mechanisms which have either led to or are associated with the clinical conditions affecting their patients. With comprehensive chapters on fetal medicine, genetics, inherited biochemical disorders, fundamental physiological concepts, the cardiovascular, renal and respiratory systems, bacterial and transplacental infections, pharmacokinetics, nutrition, and an overview of haemostasis, A Foundation For Neonatal Care aids understanding of the continuum of developmental physiology and pathology which is now required of neonatal care providers.
