The cranial implants, produced on the company’s EXT 220 MED extrusion platform using Evonik’s VESTAKEEP i4 3DF PEEK material, have been successfully used at the University Hospital Basel, in Switzerland, and Salzburg University Hospital, in Austria.
Implanting even a large skull section may seem like a relatively small victory in the dramatic context of the ongoing war but it’s making a huge difference in this soldier’s life.
New research at the University of New South Wales has shown a way to 3D print actual human bone. Bone is a highly complex human tissue, as it is both strong and lightweight, mostly due to the detailed natural lattice structure on the interior. Most times a damaged bone can heal itself; a break needs… Continue reading Creating Real Human Bone With 3D Printing
There may soon be a way to 3D print bones directly into patients.
3D printed medical models are becoming ever more realistic, as Stratasys shows with its new biomechanically realistic bone capability.
This week’s selection is “Triceratops Skull No. 21” by Javid Jooshesh.
Researchers at the University of Manchester have developed 3D-printed ‘bone bricks’ as a cost-effective method of repairing shattered limbs that are a result of blast explosions.
We’ve just learned of a new venture seeking to simplify access to 3D printed bones: The ADAM Project.
This week’s selection is “3D Bioprinting and Nanotechnology in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine” by Lijie Grace Zhang, John P Fisher, and Kam Leong.
Bioprinters are typically used to 3D print soft tissue, but what about bones?
Researchers at Trinity College in Dublin have worked out a new process for 3D printing live, complex bone structures.
