A Chinese farmer left with a large chunk missing from his skull is to have it repaired with the help of a 3D printer. The man, known only as 46-year-old Hu, was injured after falling from the third floor of his home in Xi’an, Shaanxi province. Doctors are now planning to re-build his skull with a titanium mesh created by a 3D printer. The custom-made implant will be inserted under Hu’s skin and attached to his skull. If the procedure is successful, doctors say the mesh will restore the original shape of his head.
