3-D computer graphics models development for the operative procedure of the Senning operation

Congenital heart diseases have wide variations. There are some difficulties in understanding the morphology and physiology of these conditions. For understanding and explanation of complex pathological condition, 2-D illustration (schema) has been used. However, to understand the complicated operative procedure, 3-D recognition of the morphology is mandatory. We developed 3-D computer graphics (CG) models for the explanation and the understanding of the Senning operation (atrial switch operation) that is the operative treatment for congenital heart diseases. Our system is useful for explaining the surgical treatment to patients and their family and for teaching.
