In this week’s issue of “From Academia”, we share with you three diverse publication in the space of 3D printed devices to alleviate supply shortages during COVID-19 pandemic, bioprinted constructs with shape memory capabilities, and 3D printed anatomical retroperitoneum models for anatomical education. The first article examines the practicality and clinical suitability of four face shields fabricated via material extrusion 3D printing. The second article demonstrates the use of a bioprinted pore-forming hydrogel constructs for enabling minimally invasive tissue regeneration and cell therapy. The third article presents a systematic workflow towards the development of anatomical retroperitoneum models utilizing CT and MRI datasets. This work allows the development of cadaver-based models which are highly accurate, reproducible and durable.
“From Academia” features recent, relevant, close to commercialization academic publications. Subjects include but not limited to healthcare 3D printing, 3D bioprinting, and related emerging technologies.
