3D bio printing

A new method of 3D printing living tissues

A new method of 3D printing living tissues

Aug 18, 2017 United Kingdom
Scientists have developed a new method to 3D-print laboratory-grown cells to form living structures. The approach could revolutionise regenerative medicine, enabling the production of complex tissues and cartilage that would potentially support, repair or augment diseased and damaged areas of the body.
3D printed polymer stents grow with pediatric patients and biodegrade

3D printed polymer stents grow with pediatric patients and biodegrade

Jun 14, 2017 United States
A new study demonstrates proof-of-concept for combining computational design and simulation tools with 3D printing technology to produce self-expandable polymer stents that can grow with pediatric patients, are biodegradable, and require only a minimally-invasive procedure for implantation.
