Surgeons will soon have a powerful new tool for planning and practice with the creation of the first full-sized 3D bioprinted model of the human heart.
Researchers mechanically reprocess silk into a biologically compatible component of bioinks that improves the structural fidelity of 3D-printed hydrogels containing cells for use in drug development and regrowing lost or damaged body
Radiator-like fluid systems adjust the genetic wiring inside human liver cells in preliminary work toward artificial organ-tissue engineering.
Since mid-2019, the Fraunhofer IBMT has been developing an analysis platform as an alternative to animal experiments in drug development.
New muscle has successfully been created in mice using a minimally invasive technique dubbed ‘intravital 3D bioprinting’.
An anaesthesia team used 3D printing and virtual reality to produce an exact model of the airway of a 7-year-old girl in order to prepare properly for an operation to remove part of her lung.
Researchers developed a device that can monitor bladder volume in real time and effectively empty the bladder.
For the first time, researchers managed to make intact human organs transparent. Using microscopic imaging they could revealed underlying complex structures of the see-through organs at the cellular level.
Researchers have found a way to speed up tissue engineering for potential organ regeneration or replacement using a novel bioprinter.
Researchers report that among patients with obesity, robotic kidney transplants produce survival outcomes comparable to those seen among nonobese patients.
A robotic single-port kidney transplant, which enables all surgical instruments and the donor kidney to be placed through one small abdominal incision.
Researchers have shown that AI can evaluate written messages by patients with severely diseased livers to detect language abnormalities associated with liver disease.
