Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

For the first time, a fully 3D printed Titanium sternum and partial ribcage has been implanted into a patient.

Apparently, 3d printed replacements have been used as implants before, but the ribcage proved to be one of the bigger challenges due to the shape and positioning of the bones and their individuality, varying from person to person.

No information so far if they have any intention to use other metals and alloys in the future....
