Researchers at Tel Aviv University have printed an entire active and viable glioblastoma tumor using a 3D printer.
With increased medical precision, speed of service and reduced cost, 3D printing presents a unique opportunity to transform traditional healthcare and its delivery. We give key insights on an array of topics that includes 3D printing of implants and prosthetics, anatomical modeling for surgical planning and the advances of bioprinting of tissue, vessels and organs.
Marc Knebel, head of Medical Systems at Evonik, explains the benefits and applications of the new high-performance polymer VESTAKEEP Care M40 3DF.
Bioprinted 3D cardiac patches could reverse scar formation and promote myocardial regeneration after heart attacks.
The Scar Free Foundation has launched a research programme that aims to revolutionise surgeons’ ability to reconstruct nose and ear cartilage in patients affected by facial difference.
Researchers have developed a new process for producing movable, self-adjusting materials systems with standard 3D-printers.
In order to quickly customize implants with complex structures, scientists use 3D printing technology to prepare Ti-Mo alloy implants, and then adjust the microstructure and performance through subsequent heat treatment.
New research could help surgeons perform liver resections with greater accuracy and deliver improved patient outcomes.
Researchers have discovered how to tailor-make artificial body parts and other medical devices with built-in functionality that offers better shape and durability, while cutting the risk of bacterial infection at the same time.
Very thin layers of organic stabilizer residue in metal nanoparticle (MNP) inks are behind a loss of conductivity in 3D printed materials and electronic devices.
Researchers have used 3D bioprinting technology to create custom-shaped cartilage. They aim to make it easier for surgeons to safely restore the features of skin cancer patients living with nasal cartilage defects after surgery.
