The first edition of the new conference series AM Medical Days 2021 starts with the focus on "Medical AM: How to apply it to patients?".
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.
Scientists from Empa were able to 3D print stable well-shaped microstructures made from silica aerogels for use in biotechnology and precision engineering.
A 3D printed microneedle vaccine patch delivers stronger immune response than a vaccine shot.
Researchers have developed a method to integrate sensing capabilities into 3D printable structures comprised of repetitive cells.
Researchers at Tel Aviv University have printed an entire active and viable glioblastoma tumor using a 3D printer.
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.
