BIOLIFE4D Successfully 3D Prints Human Heart Tissue Ahead of Schedule

According to the American Heart Association, heart disease, also known as cardiovascular disease, refers to a variety of different problems that affect that heart, many of which are connected to atherosclerosis, a condition in which plaque builds up in the walls of the arteries making it difficult for the heart to pump blood as needed. […]

3D Printed Hearts, Both Real and Imagined, On Display in New Exhibit

If you ask a child to draw a heart, he or she will likely give you a simple drawing of two arches meeting at a point. In fact, that’s what you’ll probably get if you ask most adults to draw a heart, too. But that simple line drawing, the universal symbol for love, looks nothing […]

BIOLIFE4D Hopes to Raise $50M to Develop 3D Printed Transplantable Hearts

BIOLIFE4D Hopes to Raise $50M to Develop 3D Printed Transplantable Hearts

In 1967, in Cape Town, South Africa, a surgeon named Dr. Christiaan Barnard successfully transplanted the heart of a 25-year-old woman who had died in a car accident into the body of a 55-year-old grocer who was dying of heart disease. While the surgery was a success, the recipient died 18 days later. Others who […]

BIOLIFE4D Seeks Investment Funding for 3D Printed Hearts

BIOLIFE4D Seeks Investment Funding for 3D Printed Hearts

When it comes to 3D bioprinting, progress comes in increments. Most organizations that have been bioprinting human tissue have done so thus far for research and drug testing purposes, with the goal of eventually creating tissue or even entire organs that can be transplanted into human patients. Startup BIOLIFE4D, however, isn’t beating around the bush […]

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

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 model changed the course of the surgery, Dr. Bramlet was sold on the technology for good. He decided to begin building a digital library of […]

Here are Some Fun and Fabulous Things to Fabricate for February

So it’s February. The shortest month of the year, yet somehow it feels like the longest. It’s been winter long enough that everyone’s really sick of it, and it’s grey outside, and when the sun comes out, it’s just kind of a tease. Perhaps it’s different in different geographical areas – a friend of mine from […]

High-Tech Partnership Reaches New High, 3D Printing Heart Tissue in Zero-G

That’s one small pulse for a heart, one giant beat for heart health. Okay, it’s not exactly beating yet, but the latest in heart health is pretty literally out of this world. In a successful test flight earlier this week, and a world first, cardiac and vascular structures were 3D printed in zero gravity using […]

Carnegie Mellon Researchers Hack & Refine Hardware to 3D Print Soft Tissue and Soon, Heart Muscle

It’s easy to see why 3D printing is so often equated with magic. Who would have ever dreamed we could set up a fairly simple machine, give it some instructions, and watch it fabricate items from the smallest to largest–right in our own homes? That’s enough to blow any time traveler’s mind, but when you […]

“Grey’s Anatomy” Prominently Features Medical 3D Printing Technology

Gray’s Anatomy, the textbook of human anatomy originally written by Henry Gray and illustrated by Henry Vandyke Carter, was widely regarded as the seminal work on the subject and it’s still revised and republished today. Since its publication in 1858, it has served as a crucial guide to doctors and surgeons in their daily work, […]

Illinois Doctor is Building a Library of 3D Printable Hearts

We have seen several major stories in the past year, where doctors have been using 3D printed models of hearts, created from MRI scans. These hearts are typically life-size when printed, and allow surgeons to literally hold a replica of a patient’s heart in their hands. This has proven to be an amazing tool for surgeons who are […]
