3-D Printing’s: Nerve Regeneration

Posted by on Nov 17, 2015 in Technology | Comments Off on 3-D Printing’s: Nerve Regeneration

Additive manufacturing, or 3-D printing, makes it possible to build more customized biomedical implants, and has become a popular way to make dental implants and even windpipes. A new 3-D printed structure meant to “guide” the regrowth and reconnection of the loose ends of an injured nerve suggests that the technique could appeal to neurosurgeons as well. The new technique should be thought of as a starting point that “opens the door” for the development of new regeneration schemes that take advantage of 3-D printing to make implants with...

3D printing could make custom medical devices and car parts— not to mention shoes that fit just right.

Posted by on Jul 27, 2015 in Technology | Comments Off on 3D printing could make custom medical devices and car parts— not to mention shoes that fit just right.

3D printers will be used to make airplane or car parts that are stronger and yet lighter than ones used today, helping to reduce fuel consumption. He also wants to make it possible to rapidly print custom shoe soles, fitted to the quirks of individual arches, and place printers in operating rooms to generate stents matched to patients’...

3D printing of kidney components

Researchers from Sydney and Harvard universities have announced that they have successfully 3D Bio-Printed Capillaries (tiny blood vessels that pass blood from the arteries into the veins) which just may be the “great step” towards achieving the goal of large transplantable organs such as Kidneys.   Jennifer Lewis, professor of biologically inspired engineering at Harvard, said the ultimate goal—creating functioning human organs—is a “really long moon shot.” But she added that her group has made significant progress by fabricating rudimentary...

3D printing helps heart surgeons.

3D printed heart model helped the surgical team cut down on operating time and reduce exploratory surgeries for a 14 month-old-boy, according to the Courier-Journal. The heart surgeon’s comment was “Once I had a model, I knew exactly what I needed to do and how I could do it. It was a tremendous benefit.” 3D printing is still in its nascence, and it’s certainly far away from being able to solve problems for the general public . Still, it’s found a number of uses in specialized cases like building a replacement hand for a...
