3D Printing Could One Day Help Fix Damaged Cartilage In Knees, Noses And Ears




Athletes, the elderly and others who suffer from injuries and arthritis can lose cartilage and experience a lot of pain. Cartilage is a tissue which has very poor regenerative potential. Researchers are now reporting, however, that they have produced found a way to produce the “rubbery” the cartilage tissue with 3D bioprinting and human cells and have successfully confirmed it in a in vivo mice model. The development could one day lead to precisely printed implants to heal damaged noses, ears and knees.
