Sumary of 3D ‘bioprinting’ used to create nose cartilage:

  • A team of University of Alberta researchers has discovered a way to use 3-D bioprinting technology to create custom-shaped cartilage for use in surgical procedures..
  • The work aims to make it easier for surgeons to safely restore the features of skin cancer patients living with nasal cartilage defects after surgery..
  • Adesida, Boluk and graduate student Xiaoyi Lan led the project to create the 3-D printed cartilage in hopes of providing a better solution for a clinical problem facing many patients with skin cancer..
  • Traditionally, surgeons would take cartilage from one of the patient’s ribs and reshape it to fit the needed size and shape for reconstructive surgery….
