A 9-year-old Dachshund named Patches with a large multilobular osteochondrosarcoma tumor growing into her skull was recently saved thanks to a custom 3D-printed skull plate that was used to replace about 70 percent of the dog’s cancer-ridden skull.

In a joint effort, researchers and veterinary surgeons at University of Guelph’s Ontario Veterinary College and Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine created the replacement skull, then removed the diseased portion of the dog’s skull and replaced it with the 3D-printed plate. Patches came through the surgery with flying colors.
