Man’s Crushed Face to be Rebuilt After Bike Crash using 3D Printer

A man whose face was crushed in a motorbike accident will have the damaged half rebuilt using 3D printing technology.

A team of surgeons from Morriston Hospital, Swansea, hope to restore the symmetry of the victim’s face using specially-designed plates, in what is thought to be a world first.

The team, led by consultant maxillofacial surgeon Adrian Sugar, used CT scan images to create a mirror image of the man’s good side for the Additive Manufacturing, or 3D printing.

The printed images were then used to design guides to cut and position the bones with pinpoint accuracy, as well as create tailor-made implants for the patient.

It is thought to be the first procedure of its kind – and the titanium plates are being produced in one of just a few 3D printing centres in Belgium.

Surgeons will break and cut several facial bones in the complex operation, but the 3D printing will produce guide devices to make the repositioning of the bones a lot more accurate.

The project is the work of the Centre of Applied Reconstructive Technologies in Surgery (CARTIS), formed in 2006 as a partnership between Morriston Hospital’s Maxillofacial Unit and Product Design and Research (PDR) based at Cardiff Metropolitan University.

ABMU’s Maxillofacial Laboratory services manager, reconstructive scientist Peter Evans, said: “The patient suffered trauma and had multiple injuries across his body, including some quite severe facial injuries.

“He underwent emergency surgery at the time and we are now at the stage where we can do a proper reconstruction of his face.”

And the procedure is already featured in an exhibition at the Science Museum in London before the operation itself is carried out.

Mr Evans added: “We have done everything up the point of surgery. The concept of the operation has been virtually designed and we hope to do the work very soon.

“The patient’s facial symmetry will be restored so he should be back to normal as far as his facial looks are concerned.”

The exhibition is called 3D: Printing The Future, and will feature until July 2014.

It comes after the word’s first 3D printed gun exploded during a test by federal agents this week.

Nigerian Parents Arrested After Teen Son Dies During Religious Fast

Published

A Nigerian couple have been arrested in the US after their 15-year-old son reportedly died during a 40-day religious fast.

Kehinde Omosebi, 49, and Titilayo Omosebi, 48, of Reedsburg, were on Tuesday charged with child neglect causing death and child neglect causing great bodily harm.

The father was said to have walked to the Reedburg police station on Sunday, to report his son had died on Friday, Chief Timothy Becker said.

Investigators who went to the Omosebi home reportedly had to force their way in, as the doors was padlocked on the inside. No food was discovered in the home. They found the “extremely emaciated and deceased” teenager, and also found a gaunt 11-year-old child, along with his mother, Titilayo, who was also undernourished, according to the report.

The father, Kehinde, told authorities that the family began fasting on July 19, and that he was a “religious minister affiliated with Cornerstone Reformation Ministries,” which is believed by police to have been made up.

The mother and 11-year-old were transported to a hospital. The mother reportedly refused medical treatment due to religious reasons, and was taken to the Sauk County Jail.

The child remains in protective custody at Children’s Hospital in Madison, while, according to Becker, the parents are eating while in jail.

This Illuminati Conspiracy Theory Of Celebrities With Black Eyes Will Shock You..

Published

on

A bizarre conspiracy theory has emerged suggesting that celebrities seen sporting a black left eye are part of the Illuminati. Former US President George W. Bush, along with the Pope, Prince Philip and Prince Andrew, have all also been photographed with black eyes.

According to some conspiracy theorists, the black left eye is part of a cult or ‘Illuminati’ high-level initiation ritual during which the pledger is said to be forced to ‘eat pain’ in a quest to become more powerful.

Author and internet radio show host Sherry Shriner –  who wrote the book Interview With The Devil, in which she claimed to converse with Lucifer – has spoken of the link between these black eyes and ‘soul scalping’.

According to Shriner, government leaders, people on TV with their own shows and hundreds of popular entertainers have sold their souls to Satan.

‘You cannot be on TV now, without signing on the dotted line. The bizarre recurrence of facial bruises on Illuminati politicians and entertainers has resulted in speculation that their souls have been replaced in a satanic ritual called “soul scalping”,’ she said.

Shriner, who died earlier this year, believed all the powerful people in the world have been soul scalped.

She said that this can one done in a number of ritualistic ways, all of which result in a ‘possession’, whereby the human soul is removed and the body taken over by the demonic entity.

In conspiracy circles, this process is also known as a ‘walk-in’. Some people believe the blackened eye is a result of soul scalping.

Meanwhile, celebrities have come up with various explanations for how they got their black eyes over the years.

The Pope was said to have hit his eye when riding through the streets of Cartagena, Columbia in the ‘Pope-mobile’ last year.

Several news reports stated that he had made a joke about the injury, saying that he’d been punched.

Conspiracy theorists have pointed out that even members of the royal family have been spotted with black eyes over the years.

Some researchers suggest a link between the bearers of black eyes to the worship of the Egyptian sun god Horus, whose left eye was black and represented the moon and whose right eye was white and represented the sun.
