Abstract

Two patients with bicuspid aortic valve were selected for aortic valve repair using the Ozaki procedure. Patient-specific models of their aortic roots were generated based on computed tomography data and 3D printed using a flexible resin. The models allowed sizing of the valve leaflets and practising of leaflet suturing.
