The world of 3D printing has come so far that scientists can actually produce biological products like bone, skin and blood vessels. Of course, there are numerous safety risks involved in using 3D-printed body parts in human patients. There is progress on that front, though.
Scientists have developed a method for printing body parts that will make procedures involving 3D-printed tissues much safer. Typically, when scientists print tissues, they transplant them into their patients after being printed. Thanks to a research team led by researchers at the Terasaki Institute, tissues can now be printed directly into a patient’s body. Risks from transplantation of 3D-printed tissue The current method of printing tissues outside the body presents the possibility of surgical complications and infections post-surgery. Large […]
