Intricate, laser-welded sugar networks dissolve to create pathways for blood in lab-grown tissues
Aim is to develop protocols for patient-specific replicas that help physicians plan their approaches to treatment.
Bioprinted tissues with entangled vascular networks for air and blood are a major step toward 3D printing of replacement organs.
Exact replicas of patients' organs lets doctors figure out their approach and what devices they'll need -- before showtime.
A study published this week shows that more heart patients than ever are getting their aortic valves replaced by way of a long catheter
Dr. Frederick Rivara, UW Medicine's chief of general pediatrics, talks about why allowing 3D printing of guns is a bad idea.
