3D printing used to plan separation of conjoined craniopagus twins http://bit.ly/2eM9n39

Surgeons at the Children’s Hospital of Montefiore (Bronx, NY, USA) have successfully separated 13-month-old craniopagus twins by using 3D printing to virtually plan and create 3D printed skull and brain models for each stage of the separation surgery. The models enabled the team to plan in advance and map out the brain anatomy before performing each surgical procedure, helping to achieve a positive outcome for a very difficult surgery.
