Can we print a human body part?

Doctor Peng Jiang and his colleagues at the Chinese People’s Liberation Army General Hospital are among the first in China to test 3D printing technology in the treatment of patients with bone problems.

According to online definitions, 3D printing is essentially a “layering” process in which powders are fused together layer by layer. Theoretically, any material – solid or liquid – can be fused into any shape, just like a sculpture. But the process is time-consuming and expensive, depending on the size, material and complexity of the model. Why bother, then, to use 3D technology if it takes a few hours to print a cup, when dozens can be produced in factories in far lesser time?

3D Printing To Produce Human Organs For Transplant Patients

3d printer is ready to make another huge impact in the medical field, as we all know many people around the world has been dying due to lack of blood and organs, we would have saved millions of people in the past, if we had enough organs and blood, but things are changing, soon we will be having sufficient organs for transplant and it is possible only through 3d printing.

Bioprinting vascular networks for tissue-engineered organs

Ex vivo engineering of 3D organs for transplantation purposes has made tremendous strides in recent years, yet complex tissues remain challenging due to their need for vascularization. The current study takes great steps towards solving this issue using a new, simple bioprinting process to create branched vascular networks capable of effective media exchange. The introduced methodology provides a pathway towards successful incorporation of a branched vasculature into tissue-engineered organs.

Dr. Koch von der Bio-Fabrication-Group über Organe aus dem 3D-Drucker (Radio Corax)

Trinkbecher, Spielzeug, Lampenschirme, Schuhe, Zahnersatz, ja sogar Kekse und Chips – fast alles lässt sich mittlerweile mit der 3D-Drucktechnik herstellen. Mit diesem Verfahren will man aber eines Tages sogar komplett künstliche Organe aus Stamm- oder Gewebezellen produzieren. Radio Corax hat mit Dr. Lothar Koch gesprochen, dem Leiter der Bio-Fabrication-Group im Lazerzentrum Hannover, der uns mehr über die neue Technik und ihre Möglichkeiten erzählen kann.

Medical implants and printable body parts to drive 3D printer growth

With 3D bio-printing in the pipeline, dental and medical applications could be worth $6bn by 2025

False teeth, hip joints and replacement knees – and potentially printable skin and organs – will drive growth in the burgeoning market for 3D printers over the next decade, according to new research.

A report suggests that dentistry and medicine will increasingly harness one of the 21st century’s most exciting technological breakthroughs.

Generating Interest: A Regenerative 3D Bioprinting Breakthrough

Rarely indeed do I start an article with a direct quote. This one however is so profound that it could potentially affect some seven billion people’s future health prospects:

“We also aim to integrate printed tissue-like materials with living tissues, and to print materials that themselves contain living cells. Our long-term goal is to develop a synthetic-tissue printer that a surgeon can use in the operating theatre. In ten years’ time, the use of pieces of synthetic tissue will be commonplace. The fabrication of complex synthetic organs is a more distant prospect.”

Professor Hagan Bayley.
