About 300 to 500 U.S. patients could use skull bone replacements every month, according to DeFelice. The possible patients include people with cancerous bone in their skulls, as well as car accident victims and U.S. military members suffering from head trauma.
Futurists note this comment:
"We see no part of the orthopedic industry being untouched by this," said Scott DeFelice, president of Oxford Performance Materials.
When will the first scary 3d printing memes appear?
