3D Printed Implants to Eliminate Surgical Procedures for Bone Fracture Repair

A team of researchers at Evonik Industries has developed 3D printed implants to replace complex and painful medical procedures implemented during the treatment of bone fracture. The German chemical company successfully created the implants when investigating into biodegradable composite materials as a substitute for metal implants. Biocompatible elements and materials have a significant advantage over metal implants because of the human body’s ability to absorb these components as it heals. …
