What You Missed Last Month – November Edition

Lots went on in the 3D Printing field last month. From 3D printed light receptors for prosthetic vision devices to $10 3D ultrasound chips and 3D printing for spinal cord injuries to 3D printed model body parts, a lot went on in the month of November. Here is a quick overview of what you missed:

 

FDA Approves First Continuous Glucose Monitoring System Not Requiring Blood Sample Calibration

BioLIFE4D Has Successfully 3D Printed Human Cardiac Tissue

BIOLIFE4D announced earlier this year that it has successfully 3D printed human cardiac tissue demonstrating the ability to 3D bio-print viable tissue for transplant.

The successfully printed cardiac patch contains multiple cell types and included preliminary vascularization. The patches can be used in patients with acute heart failure to restore myocardial contraction.

Heart Implant, 3D Printed to Order

For patients with heart rhythm disorders, current pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators are “one-size-fits- all” devices that provide narrowly limited information for cardiologists treating patients with the devices.Using 3D printing, researchers at Washington University are developing more precise heart sensors that might lead to tailored treatment for heart conditions like atrial fibrillation.
