• 3D Printed Tracheal Splints become Life-Savior again

     3D Print Tracheal Splints

    An adolescent girl suffering from Tracheobronchomalacia, a rare congenital breathing disorder, recently underwent a surgery at CS Mott Children's Hospital, receiving the 3D Printed Tracheal Splint. Using Polycaprolactone and MRI & CTs, Dr Glenn Green was able to print the Splint-supported Trachea.

     Trachea Without Tissue Scaffolds 3D Printing Advancements

    Researchers from Nagasaki University in Japan are working on scaffold-free approaches for an artificial trachea by assessing the circumferential tracheal replacement using scaffold-free trachea-like grafts, generated from isolated cells in an inbred animal model. Regenova 3D bioprinter from Cyfuse Biomedical was used to assemble multicellular spheroids in a tube-shaped artificial trachea.

  • 13 Month Old With No Trachea Gets Life From 3D Printing

    4D Bioprinting Can Have Miraculous Potential In Regenerative Medicine

    Ramiah Martin, Susquehanna Valley, PA, was born with a rare medical condition called the Tracheal Agenesis, which left her without trachea and improperly formed esophagus. The doctors at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital used 3D Printing Technology to create a 3D Print Model of her esophageal passage and plan the surgeries ahead of time when she was 4 months old. Although she may require further interventions in future, the kid has been discharged with ventilator support at age of 13 months.
