WASHINGTON - American researchers have developed a method of printing tubular structures that can be used to mimic the natural blood vessels and catheters in the human body in 3D printing.
Research in the Advanced Materials journal shows that 3D bioprinting technology can fine-tune the characteristics of printed tissue. Studies have shown that more complex organizations provide potentially viable alternatives to damaged tissue. The new 3D printing method can generate complex tubular structures and realize a layered structure that mimics the human body system and has higher fidelity than the prior art.
Fill the cartridge of the 3D bioprinter with bio-ink. They installed a custom nozzle for the bioprinter that can print up to three layers of tubular structures in succession. Arteritis, atherosclerosis and other diseases can damage blood vessels, and urinary tract tissues may have inflammatory lesions and harmful congenital anomalies. At present, 3D printing technology can mimic the tissue of vascular tissue and urothelial tissue. I believe that in the near future, 3D printing technology can bring more gospel to mankind.
