Making 3-D printed ears for disfigured children
Five years ago, few people had heard of 3-D printing, but now computer generated images are being used to create body parts. Scientists at University College London are using 3-D printing to create ears to be implanted onto children with severe disfigurements in the first clinical trial of its kind. The scientific team has been testing the process by implanting a 3-D ear on a rat. The operation filmed by BBC Inside Out is a major medical breakthrough and could radically change organ transplants.
