Thrombus Retrieval Systems

3D animation is extremely useful regarding thrombus retrieval systems and how a qualified surgeon performs a mechanical thrombectomy using a blood clot removal device. What is described in so many words can be better explained using 3D animation. Read below to learn how 3D animation serves as a powerful tool for surgeons and patients.

 

Thrombus Retrieval Systems

Take thrombus retrieval as an example. “Thrombus” is the medical term for a blood clot. A blood clot can occur almost anywhere in the body. For example, an injury to the leg, which is common, can cause that part of the body to bleed internally, and for a blood clot to form from the bleeding.

IVC Filter Replacement and Removal

The problem: Blood clots that move from the lower body to the upper body — including moving to the heart, lungs and brain — can do significant damage, causing stroke and life-threatening embolism.

The solution: Ghost Productions created a fantastic, medically accurate 3D animation that demonstrates how using a Denali® filter captures these blood clots and keeps them from moving to parts of the body where they can cause serious harm. The Denali® filter is a vena cava filter that captures these rogue blood clots as they transverse in the circulatory system. The 3D animation produced by Ghost Productions shows how the Denali® filter placement is achieved with a minimally invasive procedure.

Aortic Valve Replacement

Valvular heart disease (VHD) refers to various conditions that affect the functioning of any of the four sets of valves in the heart. Of course, the heart is a muscular organ, located in the center of the chest. It contracts and relaxes rhythmically, about 100,000 times a day. Its sole function is to keep blood and nutrients circulating continuously, with a detour to the lungs for the exchange of gases.

CLIENT: Dassault Systems / Simulia

In the business of 3D medical animation, we can always count on the engineering geniuses at Dassault Systems to not only amaze us with new technologies that ride the very cusp of possible and science fiction, but also to challenge us to find ways to explain and market these technologies. Their software products are nothing short of revolutionary. SolidWorks, just one of their many titles, completely revolutionized computer aided design and manufacturing so much so that 90% of our medical device clients now provide us CAD models from SolidWorks. As little as a few years ago, the vast majority used ProE.  Simulia, their division dedicated to the developing new standards in finite element analysis and frighteningly accurate simulations for engineering, brought in a new challenge for us with this particular project.

Case Study: Access Closure Minx Animation

 

CLIENT: Access Closure

MISSION: Access Closure needed an exciting animation that showed off the practical science behind how their product worked to be used at trade shows and as a sales tool. They had a previous animation that was very clinical and low budget. They were satisfied with how it explained the device but found the aesthetic quality to be desperately lacking. Additionally they had made modifications to their device and technique since it was made and they wanted to feature their updated product and procedure.
