3-D printed devices help restore baby's breathing
In his 18 months of life, Garrett Peterson has never gone home, spending his days in hospital beds tethered to ventilators that even at the highest settings couldn't prevent his breathing from periodically stopping. His condition was so tenuous that often his parents could not hold him for fear of compromising his breathing. But after surgeons at the University of Michigan's C.S. Mott Children's Hospital implanted 3-D printed devices to open up Garrett's airways, his parents are now planning to take their son home to their house in Utah for the very first time.
