3D printing to regenerate joint and cartilage for those with degenerative joint disease

The University of Maastricht’s Institute for Technology-Inspired Regenerative Medicine (MERLN) have begun 3D printing joints for patients suffering from degenerative joint disease and osteoarthritis.  These printed scaffolds are filled with stem cells in an effort to reform the cartilage that

Sponges to Minimize Chemotherapy Toxicity

This article, titled “Drug sponge could minimize side effects of cancer treatment”, focuses on a research team combatting chemotherapy side effects. The team has devised a 3D printed “sponge” which would be placed in a vein downstream from the targeted

Three-Dimensional Bioprinting of Hepatic Structures with Directly Converted Hepatocyte-Like Cells

This study analyzed the efficacy of 3D bioprinting of hepatic structures within mouse models. The hepatic structures were created with a polymer scaffold imbedded with mouse-induced hepatocyte-like cells (miHeps). They wanted to determine whether there was greater expression of proteins

3D-Printed Glucose Biosensors

This article covers ground-breaking utilization of 3D printing for glucose biosensors. The researchers used a method called “direct-ink-writing’ which allows nanoscale designs on biofilm which can be placed onto the skin of the user, reading sweat to analyze glucose. Due

Clinically Validated 3-D Printed Stethoscope

Researchers from Ontario have developed a clinically validated template for a 3-D printed stethoscope. It uses open source software and costs roughly $3 to make. They hope that this will lead to easier and cheaper access for stethoscopes and other

Engineers develop process to 3-D print cells to produce human tissue such as ligaments and tendons

Tissue engineering is something we find in science fiction novels, however, this University of Utah team has found a way to 3-D print human cells. This can open up many doors for enhanced recovery in patients with damaged ligaments, tendons

Using 3-D printed models to aid surgeons

Massachusetts surgeons and engineers have been using 3-D printed models of specific patient anatomy to help plan and prepare surgeries. Using MRI and CT images, a 3-D model of the patient’s anatomy is generated, which allows the surgeon to better
