British surgeons to use 3D printing to reconstruct a man's FACE

British surgeons to use 3D printing to reconstruct a man's FACE | Medical applications for 3D Printing | Scoop.it
Surgeons in Swansea, South Wales, have used CT scans to create detailed three-dimensional images which will be used to create the printed implants.

 

Cutting edge 3D printing technology is being used to recreate the severely injured face of a road accident victim. A team of British surgeons are poised to carry out a pioneering operation, which will restore the symmetry of a man’s face, using new parts produced by a printer. The unaffected side of the biker’s face has been used to create a mirror image, which will enable perfect facial reconstruction.

  

 

Computer images are being used to create titanium implants using Additive Manufacturing, which commonly known as 3D printing.

 

The images are used both to design guides to cut and position facial bones with pinpoint accuracy and create tailor-made implants for the patient.

 

The guides and implants are being produced in medical-grade titanium in Belgium, at one of the world’s few specialist 3D printing facilities.

 

Surgeons in Swansea, south Wales, used an X-ray CT scan to create minutely detailed three-dimensional images to design the bespoke implants. 

 

The work is considered so groundbreaking and radical it already features in an exhibition at London’s Science Museum, even before the operation itself has been carried out.
