3-D Printing for Head and Face Injuries

Craniofacial trauma is among the most debilitating forms of injury because of the important functional and aesthetic roles of the face and skull. Blast injuries and injuries from high velocity projectiles are difficult to repair with current methods and there is a need for novel approaches to generate replacement tissues such as bone, nerve, blood vessels, fat, and muscle. During Phase II of AFIRM, the WFIRM team will explore printing these complex tissue components for facial and skull reconstruction using a 3-D printer.
