14-Year-Old Receives First 3D-Printed Nose in the US

A 14-year-old boy has become the first patient in the US to undergo a successful nose transplant using 3D printing technology after his face was disfigured when he fell on a live power line.

Benicia, California-based nonprofit Canvasback Missions Inc, an organisation that provides health care and health education to the Pacific Islands, funded Jennet and his mother’s travel and medical expenses to New York.

To carry out the subsequent surgeries, Dagan and Dr Grigoriy Mashkevich, assistant professor of Otolaryngology, Division of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Mount Sinai, collaborated with Oxford Performance Materials Inc, a Windsor, Connecticut-based 3D printing company.

The team created Jennet’s 3D nose graft by replicating the structure…
