For the first time ever, a patient has received a customized 3D-printed titanium sternum and rib cage replacement. The 54-year-old Spanish patient developed sarcoma, a type of cancer that affects the deeper layers of tissue, often manifested in bones, cartilage, blood vessels, and muscles. This aggressive type of tumor grew around the sternum, compromising parts of the rib cage that had to be removed.
