Find out more about a novel treatment planning platform using sensor-enabled tissue-mimicking 3D printing to quantitatively predict the occurrence, severity and location of paravalvular leak after transcatheter aortic valve replacement, in this Editorial from the Journal of 3D Printing in Medicine. Percutaneous valve treatment has been frequently targeted for 3D printing-guided preprocedural planning. In a recent study, we have developed a novel treatment planning platform using sensor-enabled tissue-mimicking 3D printing to quantitatively predict the occurrence, severity and location of paravalvular leak after transcatheter aortic valve replacement. This platform consisted of two major components: a novel tissue-mimicking 3D printing technique and...
