Dude Has 75 Percent of His Skull Replaced By 3D-Printed Replica

Dude Has 75 Percent of His Skull Replaced By 3D-Printed Replica | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
A man has had the first ever 3D-printed skull-replacement fitted, swapping out a whole 75 per cent of the bone in his head for a man-made replacement.
Gust MEES's insight:

 

Oxford Performance Materials, the company behind the implant, thinks that there's no reason these 3D-printed bone replacements couldn't be used to repair other damaged areas, like limbs. Is this the start of the body-part replacement trend? Will we soon be upgrading our skeletons, Wolverine style? Who knows, but at least you know if you break your nut you'll now be able to just print out a replacement.
