The use of computational modeling and 3D printing to assist in the procedural planning process for the correction of complex congenital heart malformations is becoming the standard of care. However, the use of this technology in planning the placement of ventricular support devices in pediatric patients with non-compaction has been significantly less common. We present the use of a series of models to help guide the sizing and positioning of both the inflow and outflow cannulae in a patient with left ventricular failure as an example of how these technologies can help improve patient outcomes and reduce procedural times.
