The amazing 3D printed heart

A two year old girl who was born with a serious heart defect has had a life saving operation thanks to a 3D printer.

Mina had a hole between two chambers of her heart, but doctors were able to use the printer to create a model to help surgeons plan the operation.

We were joined by Mina and her mum Natasha, along with Dr Tarique Hussain who printed off the model of her heart.
