3D navigation based eye surgery done in China
September 5, 2016
An eye surgery was recently done using 3D printing navigation technology in China and the operation was successful.
The patient was an eight-year-old boy with brain cysts that had caused vision loss.
The operation is being seen as the world's first 3D printing navigation-based, minimally-invasive procedure used to treat such a disease.
The technique was used to empty out the fluid reducing the pressure on the brain and this helped to recover the eyesight.
Doctors say the boy is recovering very well after the surgery.
