More and more hospitals are entering the world of 3D printing in surgery as decision-makers and surgeons are realising the immense benefits for surgeons and patients alike.
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.
Engineers are developing a 3D printed artificial blood vessel that allows doctors and patients to keep tabs on its health remotely.
New muscle has successfully been created in mice using a minimally invasive technique dubbed ‘intravital 3D bioprinting’.
Nanoengineers plan to develop an immunotherapy for ovarian cancer using 3D-bioprinted plant virus nanoparticles.
3D printing fuels efforts to rapidly increase ventilator capacity while providing each patient on vent support with individually tailored gas pressures and pressure monitoring.
Researchers have created a material with a unique set of properties, which could act as a replacement for human tissue in medical procedures.
Researchers demonstrated a methodology that combines the bioprinting and imaging of glioblastoma cells in a way that more closely models what happens inside the human body.
An international team of scientists have discovered a new material that can be 3D printed to create tissue-like vascular structures. In a new study, researchers have developed a way to 3D print graphene oxide with a protein which can organise into tubular structures that replicate some properties of vascular tissue.
Biomedical engineers developed a handheld 3D bioprinter that could revolutionize the way musculoskeletal surgical procedures are performed.
