Ongoing development of an "ink" will be used for 3D printing an artificial (or bio-prosthetic) ovary that could be implanted and allow a woman to have a child.
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.
Researchers have found a way to speed up tissue engineering for potential organ regeneration or replacement using a novel bioprinter.
Researchers have developed a novel methodology to provide non-invasive analysis of meniscal implants.
Researchers have developed a way to 3D print custom microswimmers that can transport drugs and nanotherapeutic agents, as well as potentially manipulate tissue directly inside the body.
Scientists have made a decisive contribution to improving complex surgical training by developing a very realistic prostate phantom.
A 3D printing technique allows fabrication of multilayer blood vessels that have the unique biomolecules needed to transform into functional blood vessels when they are implanted.
A new 3D printing platform is able to fabricate multi-component scaffolds that “steal from nature” to engineer tissues organized like native tissues.
The pill is the first known working device capable of non-invasively and accurately assessing the profile of bacterial species inhabiting any stage of the gastrointestinal tract.
Scientists have found the perfect geometry: on a newly developed 3D silicone lattice, human stem cells will grow and behave in the same way as they do inside the human body.
A new 3D printed prosthetic hand can learn the wearers' movement patterns to help amputee patients perform daily tasks.
Biomedical engineers have developed a portable optical coherence tomography scanner that promises to bring the vision-saving technology to underserved regions.
Engineers have designed pliable, 3D printed mesh materials whose flexibility and toughness they can tune to emulate and support softer tissues such as muscles and tendons.
