Scientists 3D print heart in major medical breakthrough

From spare parts and guns, is becoming a promising approach in engineering personalized tissues and organs in cases when of cells is difficult and replacement of damaged ones is expensive.

Scientists at the achieved a breakthrough by a heart using the patient's own cells.

For the first time, the scientists used fully personalised non-supplemented materials as bio-inks for 3D printing, the research paper explains. The bio-inks do not provoke an immune response, thereby minimising complications after

Scientists extracted from the patient and processed them to form diverse personalised bio-inks to 3D print the heart, complete with cells, blood vessels, ventricles, and chambers.
