Artificial Lung Model Uses 3D Printing

Artificial Lung Model Uses 3D Printing

The warmer temperature and blooming flowers signal the arrival of spring. However, worries about respiratory diseases are also on the rise due to fine dust and viruses. The lung, which is vital to breathing, is rather challenging to create artificially for experimental use due to its complex structure and thinness. Recently, a research team has succeeded in producing an artificial lung model using 3D printing.

New Bioink Brings 3D Printing of Human Organs Closer to Reality

New Bioink Brings 3D Printing of Human Organs Closer to Reality

Researchers have designed a new bioink which allows small human-sized airways to be 3D-bioprinted with the help of patient cells for the first time. The 3D-printed constructs are biocompatible and support new blood vessel growth into the transplanted material. This is an important first step towards 3D-printing organs.

Rapid 3D Printing Method Moves Towards 3D Printed Organs

Rapid 3D Printing Method Moves Towards 3D Printed Organs

It looks like science fiction: A machine dips into a shallow vat of translucent yellow goo and pulls out what becomes a life-sized hand. The hand, which would take six hours to create using conventional 3D printing methods, demonstrates what engineers say is progress toward 3D-printed human tissue and organs — biotechnology that could eventually save countless lives lost due to the shortage of donor organs.

3D Printed Novel Biomaterial Mimics Properties of Living Tissues

3D Printed Novel Biomaterial Mimics Properties of Living Tissues

Imagine if surgeons could transplant healthy neurons into patients living with neurodegenerative diseases or brain and spinal cord injuries. And imagine if they could "grow" these neurons in the laboratory from a patient's own cells using a synthetic, highly bioactive material that is suitable for 3D printing.

3D Printing Polymers

3D Printing Polymers

Researchers have developed the first 3D-printable "bottlebrush" elastomer. The new material results in printed objects that have unusual softness and elasticity — mechanical properties that closely resemble those of human tissue.

Implant Solution That Prevents Leg Amputations

Implant Solution That Prevents Leg Amputations

Osteopore International has successfully developed a bioresorbable 3D printed cage that prevents leg amputations in patients with severe lower leg fractures. The 3D printed cage helps a patient regenerate new bone cells and has been successfully designed and implanted in its first patient.
