World’s First 3D Printer-Created Jaw

In a world first, an elderly patient has had a 3D printer-created lower jaw surgically implanted with complete success. The titanium jaw was built by Belgian company LayerWise in collaboration with scientists from the University of Hasselt, based in the same country. The operation was carried out in the Netherlands last June to treat the woman’s osteomyelitis – bone infection – of almost the entire lower jawbone. However, only now are the details of the ground-breaking procedure emerging. The jaw was made using a high-precision laser, which fused together titanium powder layer by layer, without glue or binder liquid.” w/ photos
