Researchers Bioprint Model Layer of the Eye Associated with Blindness

3D Printing Industry - Aug 8, 2017

Glaucoma is a common condition affecting approximately 60.5 million people around the globe. As an irregularity in fluid flowing around the eye it clouds the retina, causing irreversible damage to eyesight and potential blindness. Using bioprint technology, researchers at the Colorado School of Mines have proposed a new method of studying the condition.   Glaucoma occurs when...

3D-Printed Blood Vessels Reproduce Patient Clots

Medical Physics Web - Aug 4, 2017

Researchers in the Netherlands have now 3D-printed a more accurate blood-vessel model that effectively replicates the formation of a blood clot caused by stenosis defects, the narrowing of a blood vessel that can lead to disease (Lab on a Chip 18 1). The researchers, from the University of Twente and Utrecht University, developed a microfluidic... Read more »


In Breakthrough, Scientists Edit a Dangerous Mutation From Genes in Human Embryos

New York Times - Aug 3, 2017

Scientists for the first time have successfully edited genes in human embryos to repair a common and serious disease-causing mutation, producing apparently healthy embryos, according to a study published on Wednesday. The research marks a major milestone and, while a long way from clinical use, it raises the prospect that gene editing may one day... Read more »


Engineers Harness the Power of 3-D Printing to Train Surgeons And Shorten Surgery Times

EurekAlert - Aug 3, 2017

A team of engineers and pediatric orthopedic surgeons are using 3-D printing to help train surgeons and shorten surgeries for the most common hip disorder found in children ages 9 to 16. In a recent study, researchers showed that allowing surgeons to prep on a 3D-printed model of the patient’s hip joint cut by about... Read more »


3D Printing Is Revolutionizing Plastic Surgery

GE Reports - Aug 2, 2017

3D printing is revolutionizing facial reconstruction. Creating an exact replica of a patients face, surgeons are able to create replacement pieces that are an exact match to the injury.   Only the most seriously injured — whether by trauma or disease — end up in Lantieri’s office at Paris’ Georges Pompidou Hospital. The plastic surgeon has been... Read more »


Tissue Regeneration Using 3D-Printed Bioactive Glass Scaffolds

News Medical Life Sciences - Aug 2, 2017

Researchers are integrating 3D printing techniques and materials such as bioactive glasses to develop customized implants and scaffolds that easily dissolve in the body and are then substituted with new tissues to promote tissue regeneration.   Bioactive glasses are phosphosilicate materials that contain calcium and sodium. Within the body, they strongly adhere to tissues and... Read more »


3D Printed Tissue Is Proving to Be an Effective Means of Testing New Pharmaceuticals

3D Print - Aug 1, 2017

3D printed tissue is proving to be an effective means of testing new pharmaceuticals. Using 3D bioprinted tissue, scientists can create the kind of complex human tissue found in organs such as the heart, liver, kidneys, etc. and see right away the effects that a particular drug will have on those tissues inside the human...

Could 3D Printing Solve the Organ Transplant Shortage?

The Guardian - Jul 31, 2017

There is a global shortage of organs available for lifesaving transplants. In the UK, for example, you can now expect to wait an average of 944 days – more than two-and-a-half years – for a kidney transplant on the NHS. There’s a similar shortage of liver, lungs and other organs. Around 900,000 deaths a year,... Read more »


3D Printing a Thyroid: 3D Bioprinting Solutions Research May Enable Future Organ Bioprinting

3D Printing a Thyroid: 3D Bioprinting Solutions Research May Enable Future Organ Bioprinting - Jul 21, 2017

The thyroid is a tiny organ, but it can cause some big problems if it malfunctions – and there are quite a few ways in which it can malfunction. It’s also especially problematic because while other organ problems can be corrected through transplantation, thyroid transplants aren’t done – the risks of rejection and problems caused...
