3D printing technology used in medicine


This 3D printed trachea will be refined and it is estimated it will be used as implant in human patients in a few years. Inhalation burns, stenosis or lung disease will could benefit. At this time, the transplants in such situations are currently near-impossible.
It is supposed that an organ created from a person’s own cells would lower the risk of rejection. “We still need to work on ways to impregnate that with stem cells that will reliably reproduce” said Dr.Faiz Bhora describing the actual stage of the research. The importance of this practical study consists already in the use of the stem cell technology along with 3D printing.
