Watch a woman get a 3D-printed skull For more latest tech news and product reviews SUBSCRIBE to http://www.youtube.com/user/TechyGUYS When a Dutch woman with a rare condition needed a new skull, surgeons 3D-printed one for her and put it on her brain like a cap. An entire human cranium can now be added to the growing list of 3D-printed body parts that includes a fingertip, a hand, prosthetic eyes, arms, a jaw, and even a new foot for a duck. The plastic skull was made by an Australian firm and placed on the brain of a Dutch woman at Utrecht University's University Medical Center in the Netherlands. The operation, which lasted 23 hours, took place about three months ago, and Dutch News just reported that the patient has returned to work -- plastic noggin and all. "The patient has her sight back entirely, is symptom-free, is back to work, and it is almost impossible to see that she's ever had surgery," lead neurologist Ben Verweij said in a statement. Prior to the procedure, the woman's skull was more than three times thicker than a normal skull due to a rare condition. The increased thickness caused the woman's skull to press on her brain, leading to severe headaches and vision loss. Although the report doesn't name the condition, Camurati-Engelmann disease is among the ailments that can cause skull bones to thicken. "Implants used to be made by hand in the operating theater using a sort of cement which was far from ideal," Verweij said of the procedure, according to Dutch News. "Using 3D printing we can make one to the exact size. This not only has great cosmetic advantages, but patients' brain function often recovers better than using the old method." Verweiji says that although portions of skulls have been swapped out in the past, this is the first time an entire cranium has been replaced in a patient. And I bet this is the first time you've ever seen a plastic skull get attached to a real live brain. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

The typical thoracic vertebra has a heart-shaped body (Figure 1) bearing one or two facets for articulation with the head of a rib. Its vertebral foramen is smaller and more circular than those of the cervical and lumbar regions. The two pedicles bear long and strong transverse processes. It articulates with its neighbouring vertebra with articular processes that bear nearly vertical facets facing (superior) posteriorly and (inferior) anteriorly. Its spinous process is long and slopes posteroinferiorly so that its tip overlies the level of the vertebral body below. Figure 1The typical lumbar vertebra has a larger kidney-shaped body and its vertebral foramen is larger than that of the thoracic vertebra (Figure 2). Its transverse processes are long and slender and its articular processes are directed (superior) posteromedially and (inferior) anterolaterally. Its spinous process is shorter, broader and more horizontal than those of the thoracic vertebrae.Figure 2Joints and ligaments of the vertebraeJoints: the articular surfaces of the bodies of adjacent vertebrae are covered by hyaline cartilage and united by a thick fibrocartilaginous intervertebral disc. These are strong cartilaginous joints designed for weight-bearing. The disc is a shock absorber, its centre, the nucleus pulposus, is gelatinous and surrounded by a fibrous part, the annulus fibrosus. Adjacent vertebrae articulate by two synovial facet joints between the paired articular processes.

I’m an ED trainee of sorts but I’ve managed to find myself teaching anatomy full time for a few years. So in an effort to combine the two and create a somewhat unfilled niche in the blogosphere I’ve been developing some material specifically for anatomy for EM.
