3D Printing Rebuilds Face of Motorcycle Accident Victim

(TheWeek.co.uk) Surgeons have used 3D printing technology to reconstruct the face of a motorbike accident victim from Wales. Stephen Power is believed to be one of the first trauma patients in the world to have 3D printing used at every stage of the procedure. The 29-year-old fractured his cheek bones, nose and eye sockets and smashed his upper jaw and skull in the accident, which happened as he returned home from a night out with friends in September 2012. Adrian Sugar, a maxillofacial surgeon at the hospital, says the 3D printing took away the guesswork that can be problematic in reconstructive work. Printed implants have been used before to help correct congenital conditions, but this operation used custom printed models, guides, plates and implants to repair impact injuries months after they were sustained.
