3D Printing News Alert(3D-printed tissues for injuries)

Posted on Updated on

According to Sean Bittner, a third-year bioengineering graduate student at Rice, a National Science Foundation fellow and lead author of the paper, “3D-printed tissues for injuries. Athletes are disproportionately affected by these injuries, but they can affect everybody. I think this will be a powerful tool to help people with common sports injuries.
For the most part, the composition will be the same from patient to patient. There’s porosity included so vasculature can grow in from the native bone. We don’t have to fabricate the blood vessels ourselves.”
