The active adhesive dressings speed up wound healing based on heat-responsive hydrogels that are mechanically active and antimicrobial.
Researchers are pairing a nanoscale imaging technique with virtual reality technology to create a method that allows researchers to “step inside” their biological data.
Engineers have designed an ingestible pill that quickly swells to the size of a soft, squishy ping-pong ball big enough to stay in the stomach for an extended period of time.
New contact lenses allow to correct vision, monitor glucose and medical conditions.
Researchers developed a novel method of growing whole muscles from hydrogel sheets impregnated with myoblasts and incorporated these muscles into a biohybrid robot.
The first human corneas have been 3D printed by scientists at Newcastle University.
Researchers have developed a highly elastic biodegradable hydrogel for bioprinting of materials that mimic natural human soft tissues.
3D printing is one of the emerging technologies in medicine. In advance of the ‘3rd Conference on 3D Printing in Medicine’ (May 4th and 5th in Mainz), MedicalView spoke with Andreas Giannopoulos, MD and PhD, a Deputy Attending Physician in the Department of Nuclear Medicine at the University Hospital Zurich about his presentation “Cardiovascular 3D Printing: Clinical Applications, Educational Opportunities, Future Perspectives“.
