Big news in 3D printing and medical implants this week! Doctors have declared the first 3D printed skull replacement surgery they performed 3 months ago to be a success. From io9:

The surgery was performed in the University Medical Center at Utrecht University, after surgeons there began treating a patient with a condition that was causing a thickening of the skull to almost 3 times its normal thickness, putting pressure on the brain.

By replacing her skull with a 3D printed one — a process that took over 23 hours of surgery — they were able to alleviate that pressure and, three months after the surgery, the doctors report that the patient has already gone back to work.
