3D-printed titanium rib cage

A 54-year-old Spanish man, who had a cancerous tumor in his chest wall, was recently fitted with a 3D printed sternum and rib cage. This isn't the first time a 3D printer was brought in to create a titanium body part, but a prosthetic for the chest wall has never been printed and deployed before. http://goo.gl/Vi2203 #tech
