Drug Response Testing: Bioprinting Scaffold-Free Cardiac Constructs

Researchers have come together to make improvements in cardiac medicine, releasing the details of a recent study in “Drug response analysis for scaffold-free cardiac constructs fabricated using bio-3D printer.” Acting…

Aalto University Develops a Novel Bioink for Cardiac Tissue Applications

Finland is one of Europe’s most forested nations. Over 70 percent of the country’s boreal forest is covered with spruce, pine, downy birch, and silver birch. But beyond the splendor…

Osaka University: Vascularized Cardiac Construction with LbL & 3D Printing

Authors Yoshinari Tsukamoto, Takami Akagi, and Mitsuru Akashi, all from Osaka University, experiment with bioprinting in cardiac medicine, explaining their findings in the recently published ‘Vascularized cardiac tissue construction with…

The Progress & Ongoing Challenge of 3D Bioprinting Cardiac Tissue

In the recently published ‘3D bioprinting and its potential impact on cardiac failure treatment: An industry perspective,’ authors Ravi K. Birla and Stuart K. Williams explore the potential for tissue…

Tel Aviv University: Researchers 3D Print Cardiac Patches & Cellularized Hearts

Researchers at Tel Aviv University continue to try to meet the ongoing challenges in cardiac tissue engineering. In ‘3D Printing of Personalized Thick and Perfusable Cardiac Patches and Hearts,’ authors…

Researchers Study the Effectiveness of 3D Printing in Cardiac Phantoms

The heart wants what the heart wants, as they say, but in many cases, it may also want some help to continue performing its natural duties in pumping blood throughout…

Exclusive: 3D Printed Cardiac Patch Shows Promise for Healing Damaged Hearts

After a person suffers a heart attack, they lose about half the cells in their heart, greatly weakening the organ and increasing the odds that further attacks will occur. Doctors…

Stanford University Researchers Create Better Cardiac Catheter Devices with 3D Printing

The heart disorder atrial fibrillation, or AFib, is the most common rhythm disorder, and causes patients to have irregular, often rapid heartbeats, which messes up blood flow from the heart…

Materialise and Henry Ford Health System Partner to Advance 3D Software in Cardiac Procedures

So many conditions can affect the heart, and whether the condition is rare or common, everything is serious when the heart is involved. One of the more common conditions of…

Heart in Hand, Henry Ford Health System Leads the Way in Cardiac 3D Printing

While we’re a long ways off yet from 3D printing organs for transplant, today’s reality is seeing 3D printed hearts saving patient lives in plastic. The structural heart team at…

3D Printed Metamaterials Used for Patient-Specific Heart Valve Models May Help Cardiac Patients

Every year, tens of thousands of people are diagnosed with heart valve disease, and of these people, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is considered a good option for those considered…

Cardiac Experts Make Case for Increased Use of 3D Printed Heart Models

Dr. Matthew Bramlet discovered 3D printing back in 2009, and not long after that the pediatric cardiologist was 3D printing his first heart model. Amazed at the way the patient-specific…

Researchers Use Artificial Intelligence to Analyze 3D Virtual Hearts and Predict Cardiac Patients’ Survival Rates

If this study I’m writing about could have a theme song, I personally think it should be Céline Dion’s timeless earworm from Titanic, “My Heart Will Go On.” I know that sounds…

Progressive Regenerative Medicine: Celprogen Creates 3D Printed Heart with Human Cardiac Stem Cells

3D printing is certainly close to the hearts of many today who have been affected so positively by the technology—and often in monumental ways, like parents watching their babies being…

Conjoined Twins with Rare Atrial Attachment are Successfully Separated Thanks to 3D Printed Cardiac Model

It’s a wonderful thing to report that the use of 3D printed models in the medical field has become almost commonplace. And it’s certainly an understatement to say the stories…
