Skull Surgery a Success with 3D Printing

An infant in Dehli, India, has had a medical condition called Trigonocephaly treated with the aid of additive manufacturing.

Patients with Trigonocephaly are affected by a triangular shaped forehead which can cause neurological issues in addition to looking abnormal.

Thanks to additive manufacturing, the surgeons at Fortis Hospital in Shalimar Bagh, Dehli, have been able to prepare for the delicate surgery in advance with the use of 3D printed anatomical models, in particular, on a model of the skull with its various components.
