This is Lulu, a dog in Quito Ecuador diagnosed with a Melanosarcoma inside her mouth.
The Veterinary surgeons at University of San Francisco Veterinary Hospital contacted biomodeler Johnny Uday to design surgical guides for excision of the tumor, and also for designing an implant to fill the hole after resection.
Dr Johnny Uday decided to try a biocompatible plastic for making this job, and used blender to model the guides and implant.
The surgery was a success and the use of bio compatible plastic instead of the expensive titanium could represent an humongous economical advantage for uses in human and veterinary medicine.
