From Academia: TERM and COVID, Metastasis CFD Modeling, Artificial Artery, Soft Tissue Surgical Guide

In this week’s issue of “From Academia”, we share with you four recent articles in the space of 3D printing, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine. The first article presents a timely review on the issue of COVID-19 and how tissue engineering and regenerative medicine (TERM) technologies can be utilized to further understand disease progression and efficacy of antiviral agents. The second article explores the advantages of combining bioprinting and computational flow modelling to evaluate and study vascular colonization and metastasis. The third article demonstrates the design and development of a 3D printed artificial artery with real-time sensing and occlusion monitoring capabilities for vascular graft failure procedures. The fourth article explores the utility of virtual surgical planning (VSP) and 3D printed surgical guides towards their synergistic effects for anaplastology applications.

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.
